What is this?
On a project the Project Board may delegate authority for reviewing and making decisions on ‘Requests for Change’ or ‘Off-Specifications’ to a separate individual or even to a group / groups. The role is called the Change Authority, although they may actually form a Change Board. The Project Manager could be assigned as the Change Authority for some / all aspects of the project providing that the Project Board are happy with this.
Why it’s useful?
This is a FREE Role Description as defined by the PRINCE2 Project Management methodology.
Whilst you can find this role description in Appendix C of an official PRINCE2 manual, of course you may not have purchased a manual, or prefer to have an electronic version of it
How to use it?
This is a ‘vanilla’ role description that accompanies the PRINCE2 methodology. Whilst you can use it in its vanilla format we recommend that you tailor it (as suggested by the method itself) to incorporate the following:
- Any relevant industry specific terminology
- Organizational terminology & competencies
- Align with Organizational role grades
