15 Consult21 Steering Board WG Issues & RAGs Working Group Issues are defined as problems that are within the WG scope and will impede the progress of the WG and cannot be totally resolved, without delaying known milestones, by the WG without outside help. The outside help will be triggered by a formal escalation. Any WG that has one or more escalations currently flagged will be deemed to be in status Red (shown against time indicator). If an issue has the potential to delay a key milestone it should raise an Amber status flag, but no formal escalation will be raised. Once the escalation has been dealt with and appropriate guidance given the escalation will be closed and the WG status will revert. Other WG RAG status influences will be: Cost, Quality & Customer Satisfaction & Information, as in table below. Indicator/StatusRedAmberGreen Time Agreed key milestone date cannot be met Agreed key milestone date in jeopardy All milestones on track Cost (resource) WG failing due to lack of resource WG requires extra resource No additional resource required for WG Quality WG failing against Key Processes Indicators (KPIs) WG KPIs in jeopardyAll KPIs on track Customer Sat.
