What is a Change Register?

A Change Register is a document used in project management to record and track all requested changes to a project. This register logs details such as the nature of each change, its reason, its impact on the project, and the status of its approval and implementation. It is a centralized tool for managing changes systematically, ensuring transparency and control over the modification process. Project teams can use a Change Register to effectively monitor changes, assess their implications, and make informed decisions to maintain project objectives and timelines.

When do I use a Change Register?

A Change Register is utilized from when a project commences until completion. It becomes particularly critical when any modifications to the project’s scope, timeline, costs, or resources are proposed or identified. This tool is essential for documenting, assessing, and deciding on all change requests throughout the project lifecycle. Employing a Change Register helps maintain a systematic approach to change management, ensuring that every alteration is carefully considered, approved, and tracked, minimizing disruptions, and aligning with project goals and deadlines.
