Revisiting Issue Logs

An issue log is just that—a logbook full of project issues. Issues are documented, and their status is recorded and updated based on changes to the issues. Typically, issues don't evolve into projects or even project activities, but are recorded and considered to maintain good working relationships among the stakeholders and the project team. Ideally, an issue is assigned an owner and a target date for the issue to be resolved by. Unresolved issues can, of course, evolve into major conflicts and sources of project delays.

The project management team should be aware of pressing issues and work with the issue owners to ensure that they are resolved by the deadline. When an issue is resolved, the issue log should be updated with the resolution and its impact on the project, if any.
