Change Execution Management

Changes to an application must be executed and rolled out to the user base in a controlled way that maximizes the change’s success and minimizes disruption to the business. This process is known as change execution management.

This stage of application maintenance includes four iterative steps:

  1. Build the Change
  2. Test the New Version
  3. Release the New Version
  4. Monitor Maintenance Changes

When you have completed these four steps, the requested changes will have been completed, documented, and delivered to stakeholders. Since this process can be used again and again, be sure to use the tools provided to identify areas for improvement for the next iteration.
