This course addresses the fundamentals of speeding up the change process. Without it the CM2 Change Process desrcibed in Course CM2-04 will not be as fast and efficient as expected.
Organizations continually struggle to define a fast and efficient change management process. Many organizations have changed or replaced their change process multiple times without understanding the dynamics of change or the building blocks needed to facilitate change management.
Struggles with item re-identification decisions and the required level of visibility of changes directly impact the ability to develop and maintain the digital twin. The management of change includes understanding its impact throughout the entire organization and the total product/solution lifecycle.
This course identifies several enabling building blocks residing outside the scope of the change process that are absolutely necessary for change process improvement initiatives. Details of change forms and traceability issues will be covered in this course as well as how to handle change effectivities.
It also provides a decision tree that defines the proper rules for managing re-identification and ensuring full visibility of the digital twin. This course also addresses the cultural changes that must be understood and implemented to facilitate the needed improvements in the change process.
The end goal is to always present the organization with requirements that are clear, concise and valid and remain clear, concise and valid - independent of the volume of change. That can only be achieved by a fast and efficient process that accommodates change.
