I am excited to announce our next CAITC Operations Peer Group Meeting, scheduled for 12/8/2016 at 11:30AM. Thank you, Sentinel for hosting this event at their office in Lansing!
Topic: Change Management - Two Men and a Truck Process Demonstration
Norine Bardo, Infrastructure and Systems Manager with Two Men in a Truck will be presenting their Change Management Process.
The objective of Change Management is to ensure that changes are recorded and then evaluated, authorized, prioritized, planned, tested, implemented, documented and reviewed in a controlled manner. Do you or your organization struggle with developing and adhering to change management?
Often organizations struggle by making the process too complex, or do not have a governance structure in place to manage the process for it's success. For the past 6 months, Norine and Team have implemented an effective, simple change management process they would like to share with all of us.
