Hello
If a sponsor or key stakeholder asks for a change OR new deliverable during project closure what do we do according to PMI?
Do we ask them to open a new project or do we push it into Integrated change control as a change?
I am not clear if there is a path back from closing into ICC.

would you kindly vary the answer if what is being asked for is:
1. new deliverable
2. change to existing deliverable

Thanks,

1. According to customer description, whether it is a new deliverable which is not part of scope baseline or change in specification of deliverable, you need to analyse whether is is possible to produce/implement that deliverable/change and with what additional cost/schedule . Report the analysis to project sponsor to seek permission whether customer demand can be responded with this additional cost and schedule estimate. As per sponsor decision, customer can be intimated.
This is purely a strategic decision by project approving authority.

Interesting question. You specifically asked about what do you do according to PMI. Well, according to PMI this should not happen. Note that there are two process is in the Closing Process Group and neither of them have change requests as outputs.

The reason is because these changes should be identified through the Executing or Monitoring and Controlling process groups. For a new deliverable, that should have been identified in Manage Stakeholder Engagement or Control Stakeholder Engagement. For a change to an existing deliverable it should have been identified in the Validate Scope process.

I would also make a clarification to what Gorakhanath stated because change management was a big focus of my exam. The sponsor does not make the decision as to whether you should accept the change or not. The decision is made by the Change Control Board through the Perform Integrated Change Control process.

Since the project is in the closing phase, which means that validate scope has been completed.The project manager can advise the stakeholder that the new deliverable can be done as a separate project.

This will apply for any changes to the deliverable in the closing phase too as the acceptance of the deliverable is already completed and the scope for the project is completed.
