Change Management Template

Kendra Little walks through a fairly simple but very useful change management template:

Good Change Management makes your team smarter. When you change things a lot, things are going to break sometimes. If you’ve done a good change request, you’ll know exactly what to do when something breaks: either you’ll roll the change back, or have a Plan B to execute on.

Change Management isn’t just for IT. If you’re a developer who deploys changes to production, you need this as well.

Change management doesn’t need to be a complex endeavor.  It should, however, give you enough information to save yourself if things get crazy.
