Managing Change during Projects
This time of year, one thing you can be sure of, is that the leaves will change colour and fall to the ground.
Similarly to the certainty of the leaves changing colour, during the lifecycle of a project, there will always be changes within your project. As a project manager how can you deal with change?
What is Project Change?
In order to be able to manage change you as the project manager need to understand the details of your project. The project needs to be “baselined” so you and all the stakeholders are aware of the scope, quality, resources, budget and timing of the project.
When something then affects any one of these elements of the project, then you need to manage that change effectively.
How to Manage Project Change?
There are a number of steps to complete to Manage Change (see below)
- Identify the need for change
- Assess the impact of the change
- Complete a Change Request Document
- Obtain Project Steering sign-off
- Update Project Plans
- Communicate change
