It will have other information such as highlevel milestone dates and any known constraints on the project.Primary inputs -• Project Statement of Work - one of the initial documents created on the project. Outlines high level business needs of the customer that the output of this project is supposed to fulfil.• Business case - prepared by the performing organization. This is the document that shows how does the project benefit the performing organization (such as business, technical, experience).• Contract - a legal document between seller (performing organization) and buyer (customer). It outlines the terms and conditions, compensation details and disclaimers.

Whethercosts are within threshold limits. Whether teammembers are happy and doing their work well.Primary inputs are project management plan, andperformance reports on the work being carriedout. Change requests (bugs, errors, customerrequested changes) are definitely what one canexpect this process to produce.
  • 13. Perform Integrated Change Control process
  • 14. Perform Integrated Change Control processApplicable whenever something needs to change.For instance, if you find that quality controlactivities are not efficient enough, you analyze anddocument what needs to be changed, run thechange request through change control board (CCB)and (hopefully) get it approved.Even project management plan may get changedbased on how project progresses. All the changes tobaselined documents are done using this process.
  • 15. How Change is Incorporated
  • 16. What is a Change Request?Each of the possibilities on next four slides isgenerally referred to as Change Request.When a change is requested, it is first documented,its impact on project objectives is analyzed andthen it is run through change control board (viaPerform Integrated Change Control process) whereit can either be accepted or rejected.If accepted, appropriate baselines are updated andchange is planned for implementation.
  • 17. Corrective Action“An action taken to fix an anomaly in the projectwork so that the project goes ahead as per projectplan”
  • 18. Preventive Action“A precautionary action taken in order to avoidimpact on any of the project objectives due to projectwork”
  • 19. Defect Repair“A defect in thedeliverable identified thatneeds to be fixed, or thecomponent in which itwas found itself needs tobe replaced”
  • 20. Requested Change“A formally documented change that is submitted toPerform Integrated Change Control process, and maybe accepted or rejected”
  • 21. Close Project or Phase process
  • 22. Close Project or Phase processComplete the scheduled work, deliver it to the customerand formally close a project or phase of the project usingthis process. Also, document the lessons learned duringthe project into Organizational Process Assets.Inputs required are the project management plan andcompleted deliverables, apart from organizationalprocess assets that the project (or phase) has created.The output, of course, is what delights the customer - thefinal product, service or result.
