Responding to Project Modifications from Sponsors and Clients

The old adage was “There are two things in life that are a given: death and taxes.” Well, the new adage is “There are three things in life that are a given: death, taxes, and changes in your projects.”

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Changes are inevitable on all projects. How you manage changes can make your project successful or cause it to fail.  However, you, the project manager are not the only one involved in the change control process.  The project sponsor and organizational executives play a key role in dealing with changes, not only in their relationships with the project manager but also with the project customer, especially if it is an external customer.

This workshop is interactive, including small group exercises, large group discussions, and instructor facilitation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After completing this course, you’ll understand:

  • Why projects fail.
  • Contract types vs. Seller risk vs. Change Control requirements.
  • Prevention vs. Recovery.
  • Requirements for a good Integrated Change Control system.
  • Business aspects of Change Control.
  • How to know exactly what changed.
