This information is used to show trends and is communicated to show performance against the project management plan. Configuration management is an essential aspect of establishing project control. Therefore, configuration management is required across the entire organization, including procedures that ensure that versions are controlled and only approved changes are implemented. The project implements aspects of change control necessary to continuously manage changes to project deliverables. Some organizations implement a Change Control Board to formally address change approval issues to ensure the project baseline is maintained by only allowing approved changes into the documentation or product.
