In this section of the diary you must identify all issues that have arisen no matter how banal they may seem. You should identify the issue and describe what affect this had on the project. Explain what you did to resolve the problem if it was a short-term (day-to-day / minor) issue or what you will do to resolve the problem if it is a long-term issue.
N.B If no long-term issues are identified the maximum mark that can be awarded for the diary is 10.
Examples of Day-to-Day Issues
Computer crashed (e.g. the computer crashed during this task. I simply had to re-boot the computer and was able to log back on with no further problems. I had saved 5 minutes before this happened so only had to re-write a small amount of text on the welcome page)
Examples of longer term issues:
Falling Behind – how will you catch up, teacher off, Losing Documents,
Software Issues (e.g. you thought something would be easy to do but it has turned out to be more complex. How will you overcome this problem? Has it set you back by a few days? How will you catch up?
Going too Fast (too far ahead of planned dates in project plan)
Being let down by someone you were relying on
