Sample Business Coursework Assignment on Module 7 Discussion 2 Change Control for Scale2

Purpose:

The purpose of this discussion is to assess available project change control processes and determine which processes would fit the Scale2 project in terms of rigor, complexity, stakeholder participation and responsiveness to development team needs.  Because Scale2 is life-rated, we also will be analyzing what change control processes would be best able to prevent harm to the Scale2 users.

Directions

Considering the Scale2 project, imagine that you are the requirements management team leader. Write a brief overview of the change control process that you would propose to the project leader. Explain how a change management process will work (including your definition of the baseline and what you mean by a “change”) and what participation will be needed by the subject matter experts and developers. Specifically state which methodology your team will be using (agile, waterfall, hybrid, etc.).  Remember to adjust the process if you are using an agile methodology versus the process you would use for a waterfall methodology. Explain the benefits of your approach.
