Integrated Change Control is a key part of project integration management. There will always be changes to a project. The change control board will evaluate these changes. If the change requests are approved, they can be implemented. Changes to a project can be accepted, rejected or managed in the Perform Integrated Change Control process. Perform integrated change control ensures successful project management from the time a change request is submitted to its implementation and close.

This article will provide a detailed overview of the Perform Integrated Change Control process. What happens during the Perform Integrated Change Control process and what are the best tips for implementing a Perform Integrated Change process? To test your knowledge about the Integrated Change Control process in project management, there are sample PMP exam questions.
Let’s look at an example of integrated change control process. As you probably know, any change in one constraint of a project should be evaluated for its impact on all other constraints. Let’s say you manage a software project. Let’s say that the project database stores the account ID, name, surname, and surname of its members. A change request to modify the surname and surname order in the database might seem like a small change from the standpoint of database work. If there are many parts of the software that depend on this surname order and name, then these changes may be necessary. Integrate change control is a process that evaluates the impact of a change from end-to-end. Let’s now see how to do great integrated change control.
How to implement a solid integrated change control?
To evaluate the impact of a change it is important to have a realistic project management plan and a complete scope for the product and project. Only a complete project management plan can include all interdependencies between activities or components. These complete plans and scopes can be used to evaluate the impact of a change on other parts of a project in the Perform Integrated Change control.
The project manager should avoid the root cause of any changes. Frequent changes can lead to frequent updates and revisions to the plan, which requires rework. You can change the dates and targets of project projects by making a change request to the project. This can lead to demotivation within the project team if the project objectives or target dates change too often.
Companies should have procedures for managing and controlling change. It is difficult to evaluate a change and implement it in a project. How to evaluate a project, what to do to analyze the impact, steps to approve a change, and how to implement a changed approved. Documentation must be done by policies, procedures, and processes.
It will be difficult to coordinate work if there are many changes to a project. Many change requests indicate that either the planning was not done properly or that requirements were not gathered and addressed correctly. Because customers may request changes or if the project is out of line. It is important to evaluate and plan for change requests if there are many. It would be impossible to implement a strong Perform Integrated Change Control process.
What is the role of the Project Manager in this Process?
A project manager must ensure that:
Get the final requirements as soon as possible: This is an essential factor in a project’s success. Because requirements are important.
