Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is A

Every change request needs to be either approved or rejected by a responsible individual or a change control board when required. Depending on the complexity of the specific project or contract requirements, some of changes may be approved by individuals, while other changes may need to be considered by the change control board, including relevant stakeholders before making decisions. The change control board is a formally chartered group responsible for reviewing, evaluating, approving, deferring, or rejecting changes to the project and for recording and communicating such decisions. The project team is responsible for implementing and tracking approved change requests to ensure they are correctly implemented.

Details for each option:

A. A change control board is a group responsible for reviewing and approving or rejecting changes to the project.
Correct. In project change management, a change control board (CCB) may be required to review and approve for changes. Normally, members of the change control board come from various departments to ensure the impact of change requests to all aspects of the project, and other factors outside the project are considered and analyzed before making a decision.

B. The change control board is responsible for tracking change status to ensure all approved changes are correctly implemented.
Incorrect. It is the responsibility of the project team to implement and track the status of approved changes.

C. The change control board should not include the project team to ensure objective decisions are made.
Incorrect. The change control board should include people who have the authorization of making decisions, and it does not necessarily exclude members of the project team.

D. Every change should be analyzed and approved by the change control board before being implemented.
Incorrect. Although all changes should be analyzed and approved before being implemented, not all of these changes need to be approved by the change control board. The authorization of approval should be defined in the change management plan to ensure the effectiveness of change management.
