Managing Change on Construction Projects

Everyone in the project team has a part to play in controlling change and Project Managers have a particular responsibility for ensuring effective change management processes are implemented on their projects.

Aims and Objectives:

This course aims to describe change, how it may be identified, how the impact may be minimised, and the tools that may be used to quantify change, the processes used for approving and managing change and communication within the project team. The course will discuss how and when change may be incorporated, how it may be anticipated, and strategies used to minimise it and its impact.
