  3. 3. Overview• Change Control – Purpose – Project Issue Management – Issue and Change Control procedure – Change Budget – Integrity of change – Management 3
  4. 4. Change Control - Purpose• Change in a project is highly likely• All project change should be managed - as a formal Project Issue• Control of change means assessment of: – impact of potential change – importance – cost• Approved changes must be reflected in project documentation 4
  5. 5. Project Issue Management The objective is to capture, log and categorise all Project Issues, these may be raised at any time during the project, by anyone with an interest in the project or its outcome. 5
  6. 6. What could a Project Issue be?• A change of requirements, however minor• A change in the environment applicable to the project• A problem occurring or being identified that was not anticipated during risk analysis• An anticipated but unavoidable risk occurring• A problem or error occurring in work completed or currently under way• Advice of a new risk• A query about any aspect of the project 6
  7. 7. Managing Project Issues will involve:• Capturing and formally logging the Project Issue (in the Issue Log)• Assessing the Project Issue to decide on the type and therefore what action is required• Investigating the required actions• Documenting the actions and confirming their completion• Reviewing the Issue Log on a regular basis to monitor progress on outstanding Project Issues. 7
  8. 8. Change Budget – As well as considering where authority lies, the Project Board must consider: • How will changes be funded? • Will the Project Board go back to corporate or programme management to vary funding, timetable or scope each time a change is desired? 9
  9. 9. Integrity of Change• Project Issues should not be considered in isolation – Benefit/Business Case driven – The Risk Log – Time/cost/risk function balance Change Risks Cost Time Advantage Saving – Where the project is part of a programme. 10
