Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

changes will happen on EVERY project. They are important at ALL strages of the proejct. A change can effect the projects completion date any time that it is introduced into the schedule.

In the beginning of a project there is likely to be more float availabe or available opportunity to recover from a change. As the project gets closer and closer to completion the opportuniy to recover any time due to a change becomes less and less.

"Change" is a decision. If you are not confident of the potential outcome of your plan, then changes may occur. Perhaps more "changes" means poor planning in the first place. Change may happen at anytime (even at conception stage), again, depending on decisions being made. In other words, all project management principles boil down to planning and decisiveness.
