What is a Change Control Process?
A Change Control Process is a controlled method by which changes to the project (e.g. to the scope, capital or quality) are formally defined, evaluated and approved prior to implementation. The Process is used to ensure that every change is recorded, routed, approved, timely implemented and reviewed.
The process entails completing a variety of control procedures to ensure that, if implemented, the change will cause minimal impact and reduce risks to the objectives of the project. Communication, documentation assessment and concluded implementation are critical to a successful change control process.
