Change Management

Change management is a formalized process. Its purpose is to control modifications made to systems and programs, and to analyze the request, examine its feasibility and impact, and develop a timeline to implement approved changes. The change-management process gives all concerned parties an opportunity to voice opinions and concerns before changes are made.

These are the six steps for change management:


Define change-management processes and practices.


Receive change requests.


Plan and document the implementation of changes.


Implement and monitor the changes. Develop a means of backing out of proposed changes, if necessary.


Evaluate and report on implemented changes.


Modify the change-management plan, if necessary.
