Prince2: Change Theme
The purpose of the Change theme is to:
- Control any potential approved changes to the baseline.
Change is inevitable during the life of a project, and every project needs a systematic approach to the identification, assessment and control of issues that may result in change. As changes may arise from project team members, stakeholder requests, complaints or a wide range of other factors, PRINCE2 provides a common approach to issue and change control. Issue and change control is a continual activity, performed throughout the life of the project.
The aim of issue and change control procedures is not to prevent changes; it is to ensure that every change is agreed by the relevant authority before it takes place.
Provides a controlled way to request a change to a product
A pre-requisite of effective change control is the establishment of a Configuration Management System.
