According to the PMBOK, all the Approved Change Requests are implemented by the project team in the Direct and Manage Project Work process. But on page 496, it mentions Approved Change Requests as input to the Control Procurements process and it says "All procurement- related changes are formally documented in writing and approved before BEING IMPLEMENTED THROUGH THE CONTROL PROCUREMENTS PROCESS". So, is it correct to assume that all Approved Change Requests will be implemented in the Direct and Manage Project Work process, except from the Approved procurement- related changes which will be implemented in the Control Procurements process? Or is this an error in the PMBOK?

Hi Julia,

The Approved Changed Requests can be an input to the following processes: Direct and Manage Work, Control Quality, and Control Procurements.

The short answer is that it depends on the nature of the change request. For example, if it is a change to the SOW, then it goes to Control Procurements.

Pg 93, 301, 496 in the PMBOK 6 has the details of the input descriptions.
