Before you begin working on a project, it is vital to use a “Requirements Traceability Matrix.”  This project document spells out what “will” be included as a deliverable.  If it’s not on the RTM, it shall not be included in the deliverables.  Excessive Change Orders (compared to the entries on the RTM) can mean that a project has not been properly scoped.  If that is the case, it might be advantageous to stop work and re-examine the entire project. Otherwise, deliver the changes in “Phase II.”
