Final decision and approval the customer should

Final Decision And Approval The customer should provide a timely response. If the Change Control Response document expires, it should be re- evaluated once the customer provides feedback. If too much development has occurred to sustain the change, then that needs to be stated. If the delayed response has resulted in other impacts, they need to be communicated as soon as possible. It’s also possible that an expired response could lead to an additional review and proposal. Whatever decision results from all this need to be officially approved. When you define the Change Control process, be sure to include a list of sponsors, stakeholders and key decision makers who can OK both the process and the decision. Every change control request should follow this process. This isn’t to simply cover the team. It provides consistency and manages expectations.

8- What methods can be used for measuring the outcomes of your project against original plans? Outcome measurement is a systematic way to assess the extent to which a program has achieved its intended results. Preparation and planning is a key part of the outcome measurement process. The better the planning, the more impact the outcome measurement will have on your organization and your organization's bottom line. You should now understand how identifying outcomes and outcome chains, developing a logic model, and identifying performance indicators and performance targets are integral parts of planning for the process of outcome measurement. An organization should have a well-developed logic model in place before they finalize a comprehensive outcome measurement plan. A logic model maps out an overview of an organization's tools and resources, the services they provide, and the intended impacts of these services. A basic logic model documents inputs or resources, activities, outputs, and short-term, intermediate, and long-term outcomes. Inputs or resources are the assets that an organization is prepared to invest to support or implement a program, including things like money, staff, and equipment. Activities capture the methodologies an organization plans to use in order to implement a project, while outputs describe activities in more finite, numerical terms such as the units of service provided. Lastly, outcomes capture the changes, benefits, and overall impact that the program or initiative has had on an organization's client population. Once a well-developed logic model is in place, an organization can begin to identify performance indicators that will help to measure the organization's progress towards its intended outcomes. 9- How could you segment and document a work breakdown structure? On projects that are familiar and have a consistent methodology for completing them, the first level of the work breakdown structure is segmented into phases, and each phase has a set of associated deliverables.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
