Show Me Your RAID Log

Presented by Kim Essendrup, CEO of and Co-Host of the Project Management Happy Hour Podcast

Projects don’t go wrong because of the activities on your Kanban board or your 1000-line project schedule. Projects typically go wrong because of unmanaged risks, forgotten action items, out of control issues or poor decisions. This presentation covers an old standby project management tool, the RAID log, which was specifically developed to help project managers address this areas. Whether you need to run or rescue a project, RAID logs can help you succeed in doing so. This presentation is based on content from my book, The Ultimate Guide to RAID Logs

Learning Areas:

  • Understand what a RAID log is and how it works
  • Understand how to extend a RAID log to meet your project needs
  • Understand how to use a RAID log to accomplish project wins
