This is one of the few books that sensibly combines methodologies to produce a better approach. It is a welcome addition to the tools available for the practicing PMP.

The book has been mentioned by the PMO Expert Mel Bost in his blog. Mel writes: 

I would highly endorse my blog readers to consider Project Workflow Management as a reference text when defining a foundation project management process for your project group. I firmly believe this is the “finesse” we have been seeking individually in our project groups for many years.

PMPTips.net/small-scope-change blog published analysis of differences between the small and large project scope changes and their implication on a project. The analysis quotes the Project Workflow Management book definition. Please note that the article provides the mirror address of our website. Also, a picture on the book cover has changed.

                                         Few excerpts from the post  

Small scope changes can be difficult to define as it really does depend on the type of project you are working on and the overall size of the work. For example, if you are working on a six-week project, then a change that takes two days is significant. But a change that takes two days on a project that lasts two years really isn’t that big of a deal.

There’s another way to look at this as well, which is set out by Dan Epstein and Rich Maltzman in their forthcoming book, Project Workflow Management. I’ve been lucky enough to see a copy of the book before its official release date and there is a section about scope change planning and what constitutes as small change which can help us answer the question of whether a new process is needed to handle smaller requests.

Epstein and Maltzman say that a small change:

  • Takes less than 8 hours of effort to complete
  • Adds no additional risks to the project
  • Impacts nothing else in the project
  • Impacts nothing else outside the project
  • Creates no new issues
  • Does not add any new stakeholders or business users.

That seems to me a pretty comprehensive list of everything that could potentially fall into the small change category.
