I thought it would be good to share the knowledge on Change Control.
|Before Approval Scenario||After Approval Scenario|
|Process group||Changes Request Raised on||Approval Required for Changes?||Approval Required for Changes?||Approving Authority|
|Initating||Project Charter||No||Yes||Project Sponsor|
|Planning||Project Management Plan||No||Yes||
CCB - Change Control Board
|Execution||Any Documents Changes Cost, Scope and Time||Yes||CCB|
|Monitoring and Control||Any Documents Changes Cost, Scope and Time||Yes||CCB|
|Closure||Any Documents Changes Cost, Scope and Time||Yes||CCB|
To be clear,
- In initiation phase,
Before Project Charter is approved by sponsor, Any change request raised can be included.
After Project is approved by sponsor, Any change request need to approved by sponsor.
Vice versa for the rest of the things as per the table given above.
Any change request which affects the cost, scope and time baselines need to under go below process.
