Important Terms and Definitions - Monitoring & Controlling Project Work

As usual, let us wrap up the section on Monitoring & Controlling the Project Work by looking at the important terms and definitions we learnt as part of this section.
Change control board - A formal group of stakeholders with the authority to process change requests, which includes reviewing, approving, rejecting, and delaying change requests.
Change request - A request for deviating from the project plan or related policies or procedures, such as modifying scope, schedule, or cost. Change requests may include recommendations for corrective and preventive actions.
Claim - An assertion, demand, or request made by a buyer against the seller or vice versa for consideration or compensation under the terms of a legal contract.
Control - To analyze the performance and make and implement recommendations for corrective actions or other changes to bring the project back on track.
