Abstract:

The Construction Industry Institute CII has identified 11 best practices that have shown significant value in improving performance on construction projects. One of these practices is Project Change Management PCM. Extensive research by CII has shown that use of this practice can reduce cost growth and schedule growth. The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the use of PCM on construction projects by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command NAVFAC. It will then compare and contrast NAVFACs use of PCM to CIIs change management practice use as a whole. Comparisons to change management practice use by other public agencies within CII will be made as well. There are 14 elements to the project change management practice. This thesis shows which PCM practice elements are being used by NAVFAC, and compares their use to practice use by other public CII companies and other private CII companies. An analysis of NAVFAC projects is completed to show if PCM practice elements have the same impact on cost and schedule for NAVFAC as they do for other CII companies. Conclusions and recommendations are presented based on the results of the analysis.
