Project Change Request

Hi Everybody,

Recently I went through implementing Project Change Management Process. I think it is a must for every project. I think every change requests must be managed to ensure projects will be completed on time, within budget and with the expected feature set.

To guard against the risk of failure, organizations specially PMO need to define the project change management process that enables proper decision making.

The cost of changes introduced in a project increases as the project matures.
Ensuring solid requirements and managing changes will have the greatest impact on project success

Let us start this Post and enlighten ourself with this sweet feature which help PM more then anybody
