Dear All

We are currently beginging the process of creating a CAB to go through non-standard CR's that are raised.

I have been tasked with creating an impact assesment form the CAB can se to assess the changes and to reject or approve.

Does anyone have any examples that they can share with me?

Many Thanks

Hi,

I run a CAB weekly, as a Change Manager, and as part of any new change requests we require the Change Initiator to complete a Business Case to be attached to the request. This does not have to been a full blown Business Case as for a Project but it still has to cover all the relevant areas such as:

Time
Cost
Risks
Benefits
Impact - IT Infrastructure CI's from people to computers.
Reasons for Change

If any change request comes to the Change Manager without this information I simply return the request pending an update that includes the above information. Of course, for this, you need Management buy-in or people will simply try to walk over you and force the Change throug.

Hope this helps.

I would suggest to include your Problem , Capacity and Availability management teams in the loop of assessing the impact of the change (even the Financial management body, if you have one) so the CAB has really an accurate assesment of the impact of the change to base their decision on.
