Part 6: But we’re Agile! Why would I need a RAID?

Agile ways of working have significantly impacted project delivery for the better. Prioritizing people over processes, focusing on deliverables over documentation, being open to collaboration and responding to change all improve the efficiency of delivery. But does that mean there are no more risks? Does that mean issues are a thing of the past and that action items and decisions are no longer relevant? Of course not. A RAID log is just as useful and relevant whether you follow an agile methodology or a more predictive “waterfall” methodology.

And let’s be real. While agile thinking espouses communication over documentation, if you’re in an area of responsibility, something goes wrong, and an exec says, “what happened here? Why didn’t this go as expected? What did you do about it?” You and your team need to have an answer – an answer you can get from your RAID log.
