Hello,
When implementing a risk response as a reaction to an identified trigger, do we still need to submit a change request? Even though the appropriate contingency reserve was previously assigned for such risk?
How to react in this situation confuses me, kindly advise.
Thanks in advance,
Ihab Abdelaziz

Ihab,

Implementing a response to an identified (and therefore planned) risk does not require a change request. However, if you find your response is unsatisfactory and further response will require a change in one of the baselines, then a change request is warranted.

Thanks Harry for your reply.

But what if the implemented response (the 1st planned response not a 2nd or further response) will affect parts of the baselines that weren't affected before implementing the response, do we still need to submit a change request?
pardon my question.

Ihab,

Should the response be unsatisfactory to cover the risk and further response will affect any baseline, a change request is required.

Perhaps a better, more broad way of thinking about it is that if anything happens to a project (or you're going to do something to a project) once the project is in motion, a change request is necessary.

Since Risk Response is already in place appropriate cost/schedule buffers are added to the plan. So cost/schedule baseline already has it included. So no CR is needed.
