What is this?
A Daily Log is used to record informal issues, required actions or significant events not caught by other PRINCE2 registers or logs. It acts as the project diary for the Project Manager.
It can also be used as a repository for issues and risks during the Starting up a Project process if the other registers have not been set up.
There may be more than one Daily Log as Team Managers may elect to have one for their Work Packages, separate from the Project Manager’s Daily Log. In PRINCE2 exams, when the Daiy Log is referred to it means the Project Manager’s one.
Why it’s useful?
This is a FREE template as defined by the PRINCE2 Project Management methodology.
Whilst you can find this template in Appendix A of an official PRINCE2 manual, of course you may not have purchased a manual, or you may just prefer to have an electronic version of it.
How to use it?
This is a ‘vanilla’ template that accompanies the PRINCE2 methodology and is used as the basis for PRINCE2 exams.
The Daily Log is a simple management product that can be held on paper or electronically – such as on a tablet or even a phone.
