|Abstract: ||Changing client requirements is one of the principal factors that contribute to delays and budget overruns of
construction projects which as a result causes claims, disputes and client dissatisfaction. Change management
ensures that such changes are handled through a properly coordinated and controlled process and retained
throughout the project life cycle. This paper presents an empirical study that investigated the potential for an
automated process of managing changes to clients’ requirements in construction projects. An initial focus
group meeting was set up as a preliminary study which was followed by two case studies. Participant observation
was used to conduct the case studies during which technical documents were also reviewed. The results
show that current requirements change management process lacks efficiency. The paper concludes that business
process management (BPM) approach could be a solution to better manage the requirements change process.|
