Change Management Terms

Definitions of project change terms

There is some confusion of terms in use between different companies and organisational groups - and even within companies and groups. Some terms are used for slightly different meanings.

To help clarify the meaning of project change management and how it should be performed, these definitions of terms are given – not to enforce a particular view but to help everyone understand each other

It is probably OK if one person's VOR is another person's change proposal - as long as you understand each other!

Some of the definitions include a last paragraph in green - like this - that explains how the terms may be mixed up, with links to the definition of the other term.
