I am interested to know if anyone of you have ever actually suggested the Client that they need more than one CAB meeting.This arises from the concern prevailing for my customer that "HOW DO I PREVENT MY CHANGE ADVISORY BOARD TO BECOME BUREAUCRATIC?"...I initially didnt pay much heed but am now very curious to know if anyone has implemented more than one CAB meetings.I have done it for one other customer...1 Mainframe and 1 non Mainframe CAB.
Any ideas guys...

My organization has an enterprise level CAB, plus we are piloting one CAB per service. We are only in design, but ultimately we would have each of the service CABS feeding to the enterprise CAB. We are too big for just one CAB.

I often ask groups the question "how many change management meetings do you need?" The reply is usually one a week, sometimes another unofficial meeting in the same week.

Interesting to note that in the text the frequency of an actual CAB meeting is "say every six months".

Granted that in the text before this, it mentions utilizing technology for approvals, etc.

However, don't forget that the CAB concept, need not replace your existing weekly operational change management meeting. The CAB can be viewed as a more strategic unit of stakeholders that are used only for major changes.

Having a CAB board for each service is common, especially across larger organisations.Although I would suggest stay away from that as it can be very cumbersome and time consuming to manage. I beleive it is best to have a CAB board made up of people that 'represent' all of the services delivered being one person represents a few services.
