Describe how you would perform control scope and prepare change requests for the Perform Integrated Change Control process. The Situation: You have been hired as the project manager to construct a custom home. The owners have asked for some “minor changes” such as relocating two electrical outlets, adding a refrigerated wine cabinet that will require an electrical connection, and adding gutters to the outside of the house. The owners have seen the price list for these changes and are agreeable. The owners also requested that an internal wall be relocated. Unfortunately, the wall is load bearing which means that the architect and structural engineer must modify the plans and the local building department must approve the modified plans. The key members in your project team are the architect, structural engineer, and framing subcontractor. The redesign by the architect and engineer will take about two weeks. The building department needs two weeks after you submit the revised plans. You don’t have a price for the relocated wall.
Refer to Section 5.6 of the PMBOK® Guide. Describe how you would perform control scope and prepare change requests for the Perform Integrated Change Control process. Include at least three credible references with at least one of these being a peer-reviewed journal article.
