Learn how to embrace and manage change across your project.
(xylophone intro) - Hi, I'm Doug Rose. Welcome to Managing Project Change. If you want to work on fast-moving projects, it's important to effectively manage change requests. Change requests can be an engine for creativity, but they can also overwhelm and bog down your project. We'll show you how you can tap into the potential of these changes, without getting on an endless change treadmill. The key is to know which of your changes are diamonds, and which are duds. This requires careful planning, and a process to work with your stakeholders.
We'll begin by discussing your project plan. A good plan anticipates changes, and should be used throughout the project. Then we'll learn how to balance your changes against the project's scope, schedule, cost, and quality. Finally, we'll learn how to spot "gotchas" in your change requests. You'll learn how to control runaway change, and avoid the dreaded zombie change. So let's get started on Managing those Change Requests.
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.
