• Risk response A risk has been identified and changes to scope are needed to mitigate the risk.

When change requests are approved, the affects of that change should be documented throughout the project. The Iron Triangle of Project Management is a good example: If the project scope increases, then the project schedule and the project costs will likely need to be changed to reflect these changes. Here are all of the project components that will need to be updated to reflect any approved changes to the project:

• Project scope statement

• Work breakdown structure

• WBS dictionary

• Scope baseline

• Additional requested changes

• Organizational process assets

• Project management plan

Change requests must always follow the change control system, or they are considered out of scope. As the project manager and the project team discover and report changes that are out of scope, the project management team must deal with the changes to remove them through corrective actions or incorporate them through the change control process. Those changes that are incorporated into the project must still be documented and then reflected in the above project components. No changes sneak by!
