What Is a RAID Log?

RAID is an acronym that stands for Risks, Assumptions/ Actions, Issues and Dependencies/ Decisions. It’s a project planning tool that is used to identify, document, and track risks, actions, issues, and dependencies that may affect a project. It is recommended to create the RAID log at the beginning of the project and to update it regularly with weekly reviews.

How to Create a RAID Log?

  • The RAID log is fairly easy to use. Examine and fill in the information for the elements of the RAID log explained below. You can use a pre-made Creately RAID log template to speed things up and collaborate with your team.
  • Under Risks, list down the events or factors that could have an adverse effect on the project over its lifecycle. Assess the possibility and impact of the risks and come up with a response plan to effectively overcome them, should they occur.
  • Under assumptions, write down the presumptions the team has about the project and its success. By listing these down, you can easily track them and see if they hold true.
  • Issues are the risks that have already occurred and are having a negative impact on your project. The log should include a description of each of these issues, their impact, and the actions you need to take in order to eliminate them.
  • Dependencies include events or steps that should be completed for the project to progress or the events or tasks dependent on the output of the project. Log in what these dependencies are and when they should be delivered.
  • A RAID log can be filled in much faster with the help of your project team. Capture their input wherever they are with Creately’s real-time capabilities; in-line commenting, in-app video conferencing, real-time editing, and mouse-tracking.
  • Export your RAID log in PNG, SVG, JPEG or PDF image formats for publishing, printing or sharing.
