Risks, Actions, Incidents, and Decisions (RAID) Registers are ubiquitous in project management. No surprise then that I have my own take on the device.

Being one to make do with what I have available, instead of pining for tools, applications, and systems that I don’t have, I have made a RAID Register in Excel 2007. It is based on what I think is useful, practically achievable, maintainable, and what Excel 2007 will allow.

But wait, there’s more! I have made the RAID Register and its documentation available FREE to all my avid readers out there…

OK, getting back to reality, follow the links below if you’re curious. I’m still getting to grips with the system, but what I found works is that if you click on one of the links, the file will open. What you see may be a poor and inoperable facsimile of my actual file(s). If you’re still curious, you can then use File|Download to save your own copy and have a play.
