Work Authorizations

Every Project has scope changes. It is the nature of software development that new ideas come from the discovery process as a project moves from concept to reality. Work Authorizations are the tool for controlling the scope changes. The key work here is control.

Some of the key components of a Work Authorization are:

bulletwho requested it and when
bulletwhy is it being requested (e.g., need, benefit, etc.)
bulleta description of the change
bulletEstimated Hours and impact on the Calendar Schedule
bulletdisposition: rejected, post-implementation review, or approved

A number of samples will be put here in the near future to illustrate the kinds of scope changes actually encountered and how they were handled.
