Project Change Request Template
Change management is an integral part of project management. Most projects span months, even years, and during the course of a project, requirements and project circumstances change. As such, a comprehensive change management process is necessary to keep the project budget, schedule and organizational goals in line with project work. The below template will assist the project manager in building a change management form.
Key elements of a change template include:
- A description of the change
- The reason for the change request
- Description of impacted project elements
- Known issues or risks
- General recordkeeping: Date, timestamp, name of requestor, name of project manager, names of key staff involved in the change request
If in doubt, document it!
