Managing Project Issues
Managing project issues as they arise is an important task in any project, large or small. Some events happen that were not anticipated and these could jeopardize your project. Project issues could include:
- key stakeholders are not available during requirements gathering
- specialist project personnel are diverted to another project
- bad weather delays an installation
- a service provider goes into liquidation
Keeping in close contact with key stakeholders and meeting regularly with your project team members will keep you abreast of issues as they arise. At the beginning of your project, set up a project Issues Register that will record and track progress in resolving project issues. Update it regularly, noting the status of each issue and who is responsible for resolution.
