About the Template

This template is designed to keep track of issues for both accountability and analysis. From an accountability standpoint, issue trackers have been in place for some time as it relates to Project Management. The ability to keep track of issues is crucial, but most often times people forget to look at the big picture. Ok, maybe that is broad because most project managers I know will keep track of open/closed issues. But what about tracking progress actively on issues? This is where the management portion comes in.

This excel template will not only allow you to keep track of open issues, but will also allow you to view the open vs. closed rates as it relates to tracking. The chart is dynamic in that it will update and size accordingly based on your time span. It will span a max of four months at a time, and will arrange the content to allow you to see progress on all issues identified.
