How to eliminate the chaos of processing changes and resetting client expectations.
For a project controls professional, managing and incorporating a project change means refactoring just about every management system on the project including the estimate, baseline, schedule, project cost worksheet, and your forecast.
According to a study on capital project delivery by Accenture:
"Just 15% of projects are being completed on their original completion date."
This statistic doesn't mean that we are all terrible schedulers. In fact, just by the mere ability to compile a statistic like that ensures that most projects have a schedule. What it does say is that change orders are one of the root causes of project delay and when unmanaged, the impact can be detrimental.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Like all processes in project controls, change management should be predefined before the project is started because we know 85% of projects will have changes and your software system should manage and drive that process through its entire lifecycle.
