For this Assessment refer to the assessment case study found in Key Learning Resources.
Part A: Module 1-2 Discussion Forums
Managing Project Changes
Why is change management a necessary component of project management? What processes or strategies do you think would work best to analyse changes and perform a change request on the project in the given/approved case study? Recall any tools or techniques you have used to stay organised and keep professional projects on track. How have these tools and techniques helped you to manage changes? Perhaps you created schedules using software like ProjectLibre or Microsoft Project. Or, potentially, you created a task list using MS Word or an application on your mobile device. Maybe, you used an issue tracking software to monitor progress.
Part B: Change Control
Based upon the given/approved case study, in groups or as an individual, develop a report on change control. In the report:
1. Identify what processes are involved in submitting a request to deal with the changes necessary from your understanding of the case study.
2. Identify and critically analyse changes required and the impacts on scope, time, cost and quality of the project and the techniques used to manage them.
3. Identify and discuss options to satisfy each change request and any risks associated to the options.
4. Complete the change request/control form provided or one that is used from a workplace.
The written part of your change control report should consist of 1000 words/student.
If you work in group, nominate a group leader and this group leader will submit the assessment on behalf of the group.
