What approach do you use to evaluate the impact of a requirement change on the project?

Business Analysts need to show that they approach any issue in a structured and methodical manner.  This includes evaluating the impact of changing requirements on a project. When a requirement change occurs, business analysts often assist the project manager in the evaluation of it’s impact. Together they determine the appropriate course of action. Proposed changes should be evaluated based on how they might impact eight distinct project areas:

Many of these project areas are interconnected, so be aware that a change in one of these areas may, in turn, impact one or more of the other areas. These areas may seem familiar since they represent eight of the nine PMBOK Knowledge Areas. The ninth PMBOK Knowledge area is called Integration Management and includes a number of processes including Change Management or what project managers call Integrated Change Control.
