Change Management

Change management is the practice of tracking and administering changes during the development of a product or service. It is intended to avoid errors and minimize the impact of changes. It minimizes the consequences of unprepared and unrecorded changes and enables approved changes with minimum disruption.

The procedures involved in change management are generally called 'Change Control Procedures'.

The term change management can also refer to a change in a human organization. In that case, the focus is on issues of managing the resistance and discomfort experienced by people in the organization. It can apply to changes in a project, a department or a whole company.
