7Rs of change management

When raising a request for change or an RFC, consider following important questions to have a complete or near complete assessment of change proposal.

  1. Who RAISED the change?
  2. What is the REASON for the change?
  3. What is the RETURN required from the change?
  4. What are the RISKS involved in the change?
  5. What resources are REQUIRED to deliver the change?
  6. Who is RESPONSIBLE for build, test & implementation of the change?
  7. What is the RELATIONSHIP between this change and other changes?

Even though this is more of a service operations activity it can still be very useful in your project change management process simply because it allows you to analyze the potential change in its totality.
