Raise risks and impediments

Update the RAG and risk / impediment description on the program board

When managing a program, it is important to manage the key issues and risks that are raised from the teams.

Program impediments and risks can be linked to a feature or an issue (story) in a team.

To raise a risk or impediment :

  • Click on the Programs button in the top menu bar
  • Select in the left navigation bar the Program and Period
  • Click on plan in the left navigation bar
  • Click on the chevron (▼) to open the detailed view of an epic/feature or issue/story.
  • Set the RAG indicator to Amber (program risk / issue with mitigation action) or Red (major program risk or issue without a solution).
  • Click on Add a risk or impediment to describe the risk or impediment. It is a good practice to also include a description of the mitigation action (if known).
