Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video Learning from the change, part of Project Management Foundations: Change.
Have you ever asked for something…and then later regretted it?…Have you ever asked for extra spicy Indian food,…or downloaded an album after listening…to just one song?…Did you ever buy a new shirt…that looked much better at the store?…Everyone at one time or another…has wanted to hit undo on a decision.…Change requests are the same way.…Sometimes a CR just doesn't accomplish…what it was supposed to accomplish.…Other times a CR accomplishes exactly…what it was supposed to accomplish,…but the change didn't help or made things worse.…This is why assessing the change is…an essential part of change management.…
It's a time when you step back…and look back at the change from front to back.…You should put the assessment…into the change management log.…After the team finishes applying a change,…you should ask these 5 questions.…The first question that you want to ask is…was the change successful?…It might seem simple enough,…but if the application criteria were unclear,…this can be a real sticking point.…Imagine you're creating our mobile application.…
Along the way, learn how to effectively manage your project for change requests and deal with common obstacles. Also see how to find the balance between too much and too little change—either can be threat to your project.
