A Change Control Template, in conjunction with a change control process, helps project teams compile the requests for changes in scope, functionality, defect improvements and related matters.

As we all know, the initial scope and requirements in an IT project change dramatically.  The change request process can overwhelm the schedule, duration, and costs of a project. It may also transform the original vision and structure of the project.  Hence, it is essential to have a change control process that rigorously vets the incoming ideas and opportunities, objectively analyzes the impact, and then allows for an objective decision, and have in place necessary escalation paths.
