Integrated change control requires, in practice, a clear understanding of the scope of work and what lies inside and outside the boundaries of the scope. Changes must be reviewed by top management and the customer in order to avoid new work generated by the team or by customer representatives. The project is seen as a contract, of sorts, and a change to the contract is considered "negotiable," but not given.

Cost control is driven by work done, not by budgets out of context from work performed. In other words, cost control is seen as the process of aligning actual costs to the planned budget associated with the work performed. This approach allows changes to be seen during a project in terms of their impacts on remaining work, and not on their original budget and work schedule.
