Issue Submission & Tracking Form
Project managers on larger projects must diligently
look out for project issues, or major problems that have
the potential to derail a large project. To avoid these
problems, managers of large projects should inject more
rigor and structure into how issues are raised and
managed. Use this issue submission form to help you
capture, screen, prioritize, and evaluate issues. (Use a
separate form to describe each specific issue.)
It's rare that an IT project is completed without
any problems happening along the way. That's why it's so
important to make sure you document your project issues so
that they don't derail your goals. Use this project issues
log to summarize all of the issues that occur during your
project. With this document, you can view open issues and
make sure that a resolution is forthcoming.
