Change Management Terms

Definition of Change Coordinator

There may be multiple change coordinators in a project, both within the project team of the company/client and also within the contractor organisations. Within the project team, coordinators may be assigned to each major work package or contractor, and will have an important role in ensuring that other change coordinators and the change manager are aware of issues that can affect them.

Sometimes the change coordinator role will be one of several roles that a person has.  Sometimes the change coordinator will also coordinate other processes – for example interface management or the handling of exemptions and non-conformances.

As for the change manager, change coordinators might belong to a specialised group of project management process professionals; or be part of the project control group; or be part of the engineering/technical group within the project.
