Management of Change Procedure
This procedure provides structure for assessing and managing changes within the organisation. The purpose of this procedure is to provide a consistent approach within your organisation to identify and document how change occurs, and what change requires planning to minimise additional business risk or maximise opportunity. It is important to understand how change can affect risk exposure, to ensure personnel are engaged in the change process well before it occurs, and what will happen should the change be unsuccessful in achieving what was expected.
This Procedure covers the requirements associated with the control of the change within the workplace and addresses:
- Identifying Changes
- Evaluation and Assessment of Changes
- Design, Planning and Initiation of Changes
- Close and Review of Changes
This procedure provides the process for the management of change within all your operations, to manage the potential risks associated with change, without causing unnecessary delay in generating improvement.
