I am PMP aspirant, I came across serveral questions regarding request to change / change request from stakeholder or customer or client.
I am bit confused with the answers as there are 2 possible answer here.
1. Whenever there is a change request we need to document the change ,study imapct and create a change request for CCB approval
2. Secondly ,It should be rejected as it is deviation from the scope which can result in scope creep.
Which is the correct answer and in what situation,
A change request always has to be studied as long as it justified by the business case of the project.
Scope creep is when change requests make the scope derive out of the project initial purpose.
e.g. you manage a project which goal is to build a house.
Asking to build an extra wall or get larger windows in a room is valid change request.
Asking to build a swimming pool aside the house is not.
