Approving a Change

It's a safe bet that changes to the project scope will happen during a project. Why do change requests happen? And which ones are most likely to be approved? Most change requests are a result of:

• Value-added changes These are changes that will reduce costs. (This is often due to technological advances made since the time the project scope was created.)

• External events These could be such things as new laws or industry requirements.

• Errors or omissions Ever hear this one: "Oops! We forgot to include this feature in the product description and WBS!" Errors and omissions can happen to both the project scope, which is the work to complete the project, and the product scope, which is the features and functions of the deliverable, and typically constitute an overlooked feature or requirement.
