Struggling with the scope of change management.

Operations is actually responsible for implementing IT changes, but change management is accountable to ensure changes are made with minimum disruption to IT Services.

So is it the responsibility of change management to ensure that operations has taken all the necessary precautions to head off any unplanned disruption as a result of a change or does that responsibility sit squarely with operations?

If the former is true, change management will require a signigicantly broader skill set, e.g., have the ability to scrutinize test plans.

You got it wrong in my opinion

1) Opertions ensures that the business can function with its IT architecture

In other words. OPerations makes sure the company can conduct business

2) Change management in operations ensures that any IT work which makes changes to the existing 'production'' environment follows the specific process (chaneg managemnt ( before it is implemented to esnure among other things the impact to the business is either reduced or quantified

3 ) Change managemwent in others areas track the ch'changes'; to their area and make sure they are done in a controlled and processed process

Change management is neither a quality control nor scrutiny activity - it is pro-active, not reactive. It is the activity of managing (not performing) changes.
