What is scope change?
In project management, it should never be assumed that the journey to project delivery will be smooth sailing. Sometimes scope may need to be altered for reasons specific to that particular project or client.
The scope change process should be managed carefully. Changes to scope can impact deadlines, budgets, and project quality. A scope change process should be outlined in the project plan so all stakeholders are aware of the protocol for efficiently managing any potential change requests with minimal project disruption.
