Change is the addition, modification or removal of anything that could have an effect on IT services. Changes are introduced to realize benefits and reduce service disruptions, defects, and re-work. The purpose of Change Management is to control (but not become bureaucratic) all the changes so we can protect the business, the continuity of our services, and optimize risk.
The establishment of the Change Management process necessitated the development of the governance structure to ensure that appropriate levels of authority are engaged in approving proposed changes.
The Change Advisory Board was founded on August 12, 2015. The CAB's Terms of Reference reflect its mandate, scope and modus operandi.
