Asif Kabani - Six steps for asif kabani scope changes on small projects

  1. 1. Six  Steps  for  Scope  Changes  on   Small  Projects   Asif  Kabani  
  2. 2. Introduc1on   Since  small  projects   are  much  easier  to   define  and  completed   quickly,  they  typically   do  not  have  many   scope  change   requests.   If  scope  changes   occur,  they  are   typically  also  small  in   nature   Even  though  the   changes  are  small   they  s1ll  need  to  be   documented  and   managed.   This  simple  process   will  ensure  you   maintain  control  of   scope  and  reduce   scope  creep.  
  3. 3. The  following  simple  process  should  be   used  able  to  be  performed  quickly.   Update  Scope  Change  Log   Take  the  informa;on  to  the  appropriate  approver   Determine  the  value  of  the  change     Determine  the  impact  of  the  request   Enter  change  in  Scope  Change  Log   Iden;fy  scope  change  request  
  4. 4. The  following  simple  process  should  be   used  able  to  be  performed  quickly.   Iden;fy  scope  change  request     Scope  changes  can  be  surfaced  by  anyone  on  the  project  team.  They  should  be  sent  in  wri1ng  to  the  project  manager  by   paper,  email,  etc.  No  formal  form  is  needed.   Enter  change  in  Scope  Change  Log     Even  small  projects  need  to  track  changes.           Determine  the  impact  of  the  request     The  project  manager  determines  the  impact  of  the  scope  change  to  the  project  in  terms  of  cost,  effort  and  dura1on.  If   there  are  mul1ple  viable  op1ons,  the  project  manager  determines  their  impact  as  well.       Determine  the  value  of  the  change       The  person  that  requests  the  change  should  also  validate  the  benefits  of  the  change.  For  a  small  project  this  may  not  be  a   qualita1ve  value,  but  might  be  expressed  in  subjec1ve  terms.         Take  the  informa;on  to  the  appropriate  approver     The  appropriate  analysis,  impact  and  alterna1ves  are  taken  to  the  project  sponsor  (or  other  designated  person)  for   resolu1on.  If  the  sponsor  does  not  approve  the  request  and  the  corresponding  impact,  the  scope  request  is  not  pursued.       Update  Scope  Change  Log     Update  the  Scope  Change  Log  with  the  sponsor  decision  -­‐  accept  or  decline.
