Change causes a lot of grief in projects. Managing project changes has a lot to do with managing expectations. At CourTechnology we ensure that our clients and others understand that the impact of a change will increase over time. The same change will have a markedly different impact at different stages of the project. CourTechnology assesses each change and its impact, and takes all factors into consideration, such as:
- Impact on the work sequence
- Need for rework
- Impact on morale of team
- How this change affects work methods and availability of resources
- Other project deliverables that may be affected by the change
CourTechnology performs integrated change control processes. This includes reviewing all change requests, approving changes and managing changes to deliverables, organizational process assets, project documents, and the project management plan, then communicating their disposition. We review all requests for changes/modifications to project documents, deliverables, baselines, or project management plans before approving or rejecting changes. The key benefit of this process is that it allows for documented changes within the project to be considered in an integrated fashion while reducing project risk.
Managing Risk: Identifying, Analyzing and Planning Responses
The risk management process is undertaken to ensure that each risk identified within the project environment is documented, escalated, and mitigated appropriately. Risks are defined as any event which is likely to adversely affect the ability of the project to achieve the defined objectives.
Risk management will be undertaken on your project through the implementation of five key processes:
- Identification of project risks
- Logging and prioritizing of project risks
- Identification of risk mitigating actions
- Assignment and monitoring of risk mitigating actions
- Closure of project risks
Each risk category is a particular aspect of the project which is likely to experience a risk during the lifecycle of the project. Risk categories include:
- Requirements and Scope
