What is a change request?
Before we get to the software, let’s first quickly go over what a change request itself is. In a nutshell, a change request document contains a call to adjust or alter an agreed-upon project, contract, or system. The requests generally fall into two categories:
- Inside the scope: These requests don’t change the major goals and requirements of the project, and ask only for small adjustments.
- Outside the scope: These requests require major revision of project goals or deliverables, and can significantly increase budget and time demands.
