AbstractDecisions are made everyday in construction processes based on incomplete information, assumptions and the personal experience of the construction professionals. Project changes and/or adjustments are inevitable as they are a fact-of-life at all stages of a project's life cycle. Managing changes effectively is crucial to the success of a construction project. Change management in construction requires an integrated solution to discipline and coordinate the process, for example, documentation, drawing, process, flow, information, cost, schedule and personnel. The construction industrial needs an effective construction change management process. This paper summarizes various aspects of the existing construction change management processes and provides a comprehensive literature review as well as some comments on possible future directions.
