Should a Project Manager be on the Change Control Board
I am taking a mock exam using the Skillsoft system my company supplies as a learning tool.
One of the questions about the creation of a Change Control Board stated that the following should be included:
The Project Manager
Project team members
Key stakeholders such as the sponsor, consultants, and other subject matter experts.
I didn't think a PM should be on the Change Control Board as the PM is typically the one submitting the Change requests and he/she obviously shouldn't be approving/rejecting their own CRs.
Any clarification as to whether the PM should/should not be on the Change Control Board would be appreciated.
