Resource Change Analysis Tracker

by Andy Jordan

This template is designed to assist project managers in preparing for a change in resources in the project team. PMs are frequently faced with the substitution of team members, and this template helps to identify the areas where the change can be most easily accommodated and areas where additional work may be required to prevent the change from causing difficulties for the project.

Project Change Request Form

by Ralph Moore

Need to initiate a change on your project? Use this form to get started. It includes sections for a detailed description, justification and potential impacts of the change on various items like scope, requirements and cost.

Program Change Request Template

by Andy Jordan

This template is a simple variation on a change request that focuses on the impact on schedule, effort and dollar budgets. It is best suited for projects with lots of activity around the critical path where any change is likely to impact the program’s ability to deliver. Although structured as a program-level request, it is identical to a project request if the wording is changed. It is designed to be used with the Change Control Log Template.

One Solution for Project Success: Project and Change Management in the PMBOK Guide

white paper
by Thomas Luke Jarocki

Project management is primarily an integrative job. This includes the integration of change management principles and activities throughout the project lifecycle. Unfortunately, many practitioners--regardless of their backgrounds--find it difficult to integrate strong change management principles and techniques with project management practices. PMI standards hold many of the keys required for developing structured and robust change management activities without the need to create a separate or adjunct change management plan.

The Status Quo Problem

by Jon Quigley, Shawn P. Quigley

If you have always done something a certain way, no growth or development has occurred in capability. This is called stagnation, which breeds complacency, which often yields discontent. This in turn causes an increase in the errors associated with that activity. This is anything but productive.

"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars and so on -- whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man -- for precisely the same reasons."
