A change management process defines how your business manages all change requests, big or small. It aims to assess the cost, risk, training, remediation, deployment and communication plans for each change. When managed properly, team work and collaboration are encouraged since every team affected needs to be aware of the change. Each team’s input is required in order to prevent duplicate effort and unnecessary risk. If this structured environment is created and supported by a change automation tool, such as Track-It! Change, the outcome of change will easily shift from negative to positive, ultimately saving an organization the expenses of unplanned downtime caused by poorly managed change.
