Team,

I am dealing with a Senior manager who is proposing that the Change Advisory Board is the approval on ALL change types except for Emergency.

The change categories that are in-scope for the proposal is:

Pre-approved
Minor
Major

The majority of changes will fall into the Minor category, hence the proposal.

Obviously I have serious concerns with the proposal, my main one is the 'stranglehold' this proposal will have on the ability for IT to function.

I'm challenging the proposal and whilst I am confident that reason and logic will prevail, I am looking to others on this forum for advice, suggestions or 'consider this' scenario's to assist with my case.

My view is that the CAB exists to review and authorisation of Major change types. That is, the changes that are identified as having a major impact on critical business services or IT ability to deliver critical technology services.

For reference purposes, we (the organisation) are implementing CM framework as part of a larger ITIL implementation.

Thanks

The CM policy should define the scope for agenda items are to be discussed and approved at the CAB

In addition, the CAB can then define those changes that no longer need to come to the CAB.

The initial setup may be all encompassing if there had been no culture of change mgmt.

Thanks UKV, you've actually made me think about the request in a deeper fashion, one where change management isn't embedded in the culture.
