Hi,

In my organization change mgmt is much structured and running well compared to 1 year back. I would like to make a report how chang mgmt created value and how it bring success.

Its bit difficult as it is not like improvement of incident handling time.

Any idea what point take into account?

Maybe it isn't.

Or maybe you did not have reliable measures before from which to make a comparison.

Are there now less incidents during changes?

Are there now less incidents that are consequences of changes?

Are changes more on schedule?

Are there less complaints from people who should have been but were not informed of a change?

Are less changes being abandoned, reworked, rescheduled or reverted?

These are reasonably solid questions.

More ambiguous (as is reduction in time to resolve incidents unless supported by other quality measures) are more changes being completed in the same time and/or with the same resources; are customers reporting an improved service; are changes realising greater benefits?

Also, is change management driving other improvements such as better configuration records, better testing or better customer relations?

What about the power of change reviews? Are they feeding into improvement programs?

If you have collected the data it should be easy to report and if change management has improved the report will be positive.

I am curious to know, what was the reason your organisation implemented or more likely adopted CM? Surely "they" had an is an expected result.
Also, there should be a business case that "sells" the value of CM to upper management / stakeholders.
