Any schedule changes need to be thoroughly documented (and then approved). You need to note the specific reason for the schedule change and the person requesting it. You should also add detail items to schedule changes to show that you've studied the impact on the scope and that you are documenting it here. Unfortunately, IT projects are often subject to getting half the people they need with the same deadline as though they were fully staffed.
It ' s quite important to document schedule changes, because later, when people are questioning why you can' t bring forth all of a project' s deliverables, or your deliverables aren't of the quality that was first talked about, you can produce a schedule report that documents all of the schedule and personnel changes the project has had.
