Management of Change provides a structured and staged approach to dealing with project changes in a controlled and consistent manner. The step-by-step workflow provides steps for identification, evaluation, approval, and follow-up of related actions.
Involve the applicable stakeholders in the process of assessing the potential impacts of a change, along with formally recording its approval or rejection. The following roles may be assigned to staff; Change Sponsor, Change Owner, Reviewers, and Approvers.
Both pre-approval and post-approval actions can be assigned and tracked through to completion.
Unless properly managed, even seemingly minor changes to a project’s scope can result in unforeseen risks to personnel and hamper the ability to meet delivery goals.
