The goal of CM is to implement strategies to assist employees with an organization’s goals, processes, or technologies, monitoring change requests, and adjusting to proposed change.
A process is very well organized to address a change.
A well-designed set of procedures for preparing response to requests.
To start a change management process, the organization needs to take into account the effect that all the changed processes will have within the system organization.
The following procedures should take place:
test the change
apply the change
evaluate the results
Documentation is an important aspect of CM as we have to maintain this process and it is also necessary to take such action.
Change Management Definition
Based on different perspectives, CM can be defined as follows:
From an infrastructure professional point of view, it is the systematic approach to approval, testing, and deployment of a new piece of equipment, or a new release.
In project terms, it is the process used to obtain approval for changes in the scope, timing or budget of a project. From the methodology – PMP, Prince2, ITIL, ISO20000 perspective, it is the process of achieving a project and obtaining an approval for the environment and implementing the changes. From a software development perspective, it is the process of tracking and managing change requirements and code. Change management processes are also responsible for tracking any changes that occur in the IT infrastructure. ISO 20000 is the standard that defines the purpose of Change Management. To track and handle this properly, each change made in a set of standardized methods and procedures is used.
Track all changes made.
If necessary, base the changes made in the case.
