You can use an Change Management Plan document to address changes which may be encountered during the project lifecycle. Typical areas of change occur in the scope, schedule, budget, and resources.
Use this Change Management Plan to:
- Define the process, tools, and stakeholders that will be used to manage any changes to the project.
- Specify how change requests will be accepted, analyzed, and assessed regarding potential impact on the schedule, budget and scope
- Improve customer relationships, establish greater financial performance, accountability, reduction in project delays, and on-time deliverables.
- Ensure that changes will be proactively managed as they occur and that all changes are coordinated across the project.
