In the field of project management, rapidly changing environments are newly recognized and of increased challenge. Old-fashioned inflexible methods, focused around process control, are considered obsolete. Along with the increasing diffusion of project management worldwide, a comprehensive governance principle does not yet address this objective. Therefore, the driven dynamic changes (DC) into the business environment strongly influence the business processes and the project objectives. Thus, the risk of failure for outsourced information technology projects will increase. Thus, there is a clear need of an approach which will handle dynamic changes (DC) into project development life cycle (PDLC). This research focus on how the adoption of control principle in project development life cycle (PDLC) will reduce the effect of dynamic changes on overall project objectives. A qualitative approach has been followed by incorporating project management controls from different industrial standards, secondary data from available scientific literature and case study of Omani public organization were adopted and analyzed. This research will outline the foundation of an approach to how dynamic changes can easily be managed by using control practices during PDLC and can be accommodated within project budget.
