About the Author


As we discussed earlier in the chapter, things change. Changes come about for many reasons and may take the form of corrective actions, preventive actions, and defect repairs. An integrated change control system manages change requests, determines the global impacts of a change, and updates all impacted portions of the project plan when a change is made. Typically, a change control board is established to review and either approve, deny, or delay change requests.

Integrated change control looks at the overall impact of change and manages updates across all elements of the project plan. Scope change control includes understanding the impact of a scope change, taking appropriate action, and managing a process to review and approve or reject requests for scope changes.

Organizational changes can bring about impacts to your projects as well as the organization itself. Internal reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, and outsourcing can all bring about changes to the project.
