Controlling Consulting Project Costs: Risk and Issues Log

A risk and issues log should be used to keep a project on track, communicate key decisions, and maintain the critical path of the project. These issues are defined as one of three categories:

  • An item where the consultants must rely on a business decision that can only be made by the client, and consensus is not present (policy and business practices might be affected).

  • An item that affects the scope of the project and might impact the cost or time line.

  • An item or task that is delayed and has an impact on the completion of other tasks.

Each issue should be given a status and assigned to a responsible team member for resolution by a date. The resolution of each issue is recorded and the complete log becomes a diary of the project.
