  • Any person involved in the project effort, can initiate a change request.
  • Change requests are dealt with in accordance with an overall project Guiding Principle of “minimal change”.
  • Change requests generally arise as a result of an issue on the project
    and would be captured in the project Issue Log.
  • Possible reasons might include the discovery of a problem, the need to accommodate changing business processes, or a suggestion for general improvement.
  • The change request is then assigned a unique reference number and change evaluation commences.


  • All change requests must be referred to the Project Management Team and/or the Project Board as appropriate.
  • The Project Manager will assign the Change Request to the appropriate person(s) for evaluation and recommendation for action.


  • Once the evaluation has been completed and the impact of a change request is understood, the Project Management Team (or Project Board if appropriate) will either approve or reject the change.

  • Change control process should be strictly adhered to while interfacing with all stakeholders.
  • The scope of overall engagement is initially defined in the Project Contract that is signed off before project commencement.
  • Client may request specific changes to the original scope of work, at any time using a formal Change Request (CR).
  • The highlights of the change process are:
  • CRs are recorded in a Change Log•
  • CRs are analyzed in terms of its impact on the original scope of work, effort and application quality
  • Impact of increased scope of work on project schedules, planned resources and costs is assessed
  • CRs are implemented when mutually agreed .If the cost impact is substantial, submit a revised price. If it results in a lower cost the same is passed on to client.
  • If the change causes the execution model to be modified, it will be done with sufficient communication and understanding between both parties
  • If project schedule changes impact business performance, company quickly ramps up the project team with appropriately skilled resources from the pool
