One of the ways that you would drill into an engagement in more detail is by running an engagement report. The engagement report lets you gain detailed visibility into a particular engagement, regardless of when it started or ended (somewhat like the engagement portfolio report), but provides the additional detail available in the Ginsu report. This report is often used to drill into a single engagement to reveal additional detail about staffing, profitability, overruns, and comparisons to budget. The engagement report is the key report Project Managers typically use to manage individual projects.

Engagement Rate Realization Report

Engagement Resource Profitability Report
This report delivers a comparison of the revenue generated by each resource to the full cost of employing that resource over a configurable period of time.
