In this course, author Doug Rose walks you through the elements of change in a project using a sample software project. Discover how to set the stage for change, weigh the change impact, understand the cascade effect, and implement the change. Along the way, learn how to effectively manage your project for change requests and deal with common obstacles. Also see how to find the balance between too much and too little change—either can be threat to your project.
