Requests for changes to a system start as soon as it is released. That is the sign of a living system. If there were no change requests, one should wonder if anyone was really using the system. The problem is that too many organizations accept their change requests via a phone call, water cooler chat, or some scribble on a sticky pad.
What is required is for the CR (change request) information to be accurately transmitted, to make sure all the needed analysis and implementation steps are taken, and for the users who initiate the requests to verify that the changes they wanted were in fact delivered. And of course, not to pass over the all important connection between the CR and the requirements.
This MS-Word based 1-pager Change Request template supports all of the above as well as budget issues, analysis and work approval, and verifications throughout the life cycle of the change. It is a ready-made work flow form that is ready to be downloaded and used as is.
