Venue: 2022 AACE International Conference & Expo

Abstract: This paper addresses change management for the project life cycle (PLC) as applied in asset ownership and management and is relevant to stakeholders who engage in capital project delivery. This paper provides the audience with a guideline that practitioners can use as a pragmatic approach to the treatment and control of change management for the entire spectrum of project delivery and the project life cycle cost of building a facility, plant, or other project endeavors. Specifically, this paper will provide readers with the following:
  • an understanding of the project life cycle and how changes are applied within stages of this lifecycle
  • defined elements of change, including classification, drivers, type, the timing of change, and contingency
  • a tactical and prescriptive process workflow that supports the coordination of the fundamental requirements required for effective change management
