Decisions (Archived from 9.1)

Information on how to manage Decisions for a Project or Programme.

Used to identify and track Decisions which need to be made for the project or programme to progress effectively. Excludes Change Requests which are managed separately. You can add decisions which need to be made, invite people to assess them and record details of the final decisions made. This can help avoid relitigation of decisions.

Add a decision

Assess a decision

People selected as Assessors receive an email notification (provided their email notification is turned on). They click on the decision name to assess it. Alternatively they can go into their Home page in i-lign and assess the decision from there.

Record the decision made

Once the decision has been considered and the final decision made, this can be recorded either by the decision maker themselves or the Project/Programme Manager. The process is the same as for assessing the decision except that you select the Resolve button rather than the Assess button. You can also record a decision from the Registers of the relevant project/programme. (See screen shots below).
