Can PM approve change request which does not influence scope, time or costs?
I'm studying for PMP, and I'm not sure what is PMP opinion about this question: can PM approve (without CR board) a change request, which don't influence scope, time or cost?
OK, I know what is the right procedure if change request influences those baselines, but what if it does not? What if PM analysis CR, which customer demands, and finds out that it does not have any impact to any project constraint? Does PM has the authority to approve this CR on his own?
I would say that still not, since this is a change from scope, contract etc., no matter if it does not have any impact - it still needs to go through change request board for approval. I'm I right?
Tnx for help,
