Prm 300 week 4 discussion 1 | PRM 300 Introduction to Project Management | Ashford University

 

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read the Weekly Lecture and assigned weekly reading from Chapters 6 and 8 from your textbook.

The Helpdesk ticketing software project you are managing is on target to complete on time, on scope, and within budget (known as the triple constraints). This morning, the IT director came to you requesting additional functionality in the software that was not a part of the original scope. You know that accepting these changes will negatively impact the project’s timeline and the budget. What is the rationale behind making a scope change once the project has started? What needs to be considered before making changes to the project? What steps should be taken to determine if these changes should be made?

Your initial response should contain at least 200 words and be supported by at least one additional Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Source  (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.(other than the textbook or required reading). This week’s required readings and Weekly Lecture may also be used as the basis for your post. You are encouraged to post your required replies early during the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion.
