Change Request Form
Change Formhelps your team document their requests for change, easily.
A Change Request is raised when a member of your team believes that a change is needed, for your team to meet their objectives.
Whatever the change request is, this Change Form will enable them to fully document their request, the reason for it and the likely effect on the team, should it be approved.
Using this Change Form, you can:
- Formally record all changes requested
- Identify the business drivers behind each change
- List the costs and benefits of adopting the change
- Describe the impact of approving the change
- Rank the change urgency
The Change Form will help you to:
- Identify all changes before they occur
- Implement a formal change approval process
- Control the extent to which changes are approved
- Monitor the effects of change implemented
Without proper change control, teams usually encounter slippage, cost overruns and substantial delays. But by implementing this Change Request Form, you can monitor and control change, substantially improving your chances of success.
What is a Change Form?
A Change Form, or Change Request Form, records a request for change to meet a team's objectives. For instance, a Project Manager may use a Change Form to request a change to the scope of a project. The advantage of using a Change Form to document change requests is that each change is documented before it is approved. Anyone in a project team should be allowed to complete a Change Form with the Project Manager being ultimately responsible for its approval.
