What is a Management of Change checklist?

Companies use a change management checklist to implement new internal processes such as occupational safety or internationalization.

Not using Management of Change can be risky. It can lead to enormous damage to the company. Depending on the nature of the change the reputation, the safety of employees or other things can be at risk if the change is not planned in detail.

Managing change is especially challenging when there is a strong pressure to change, but also when time and money are tight.

Changes to manage with MOC

Every company has different work processes and the ways to assess them. However, there are some common cases that might require utilizing MOC checklist.

Possible changes that should be, therefore, assessed are:

  • Including new process equipment or system
  • Complete or partial equipment replacement (especially if this is a completely new system)
  • Alterations to process and non-process equipment
  • Modifications to process control and/or instrumentation
  • Improvements in process parameter operating limits
  • Changes to safety systems
  • Checks of standard operating procedures (including emergency procedures)
  • Alterations in site-level organizational structure
  • Modifying maintenance procedures
  • Changes in raw material/component specifications or sourcing
  • Alterations or new connections to utility systems (air, electrical, gas, water, steam, etc)
  • Restructuring to QA procedures or critical test equipment

It would be helpful to engage a cross-functional team for what-if brainstorming. This will benefit your assessment process. It is recommended to do this while you’re still in the planning stage.

Who needs a MOC checklist?

Different staff members are usually involved in making the change, notifying or onboarding potentially affected employees and updating documents affected by the change.

One person makes a change request. Qualified professionals, typically not the MOC organisator, should review the request to decide if any potentially adverse risk impacts could come from the change, and may offer extra ideas for risk management. After the review, the change could be approved for execution, amended, or rejected. Often, final approval for making the alterations happen comes from another designated individual, independent of the review team.

5 Steps of a Management of Change

To successfully carry out a Management of Change, you can follow these steps. For each of these steps you can use a separate page in your change management planning template created with Lumiform to make your MOC process clearer.

1. Identification of Problems

Start by identifying problems and opportunities for improvement. Describe your findings as precisely as possible to simplify the following steps and to achieve the best possible result.

2. Analysis

Analyze the problem exactly and find the cause. Depending on the type of problem or deficit, perform a variety of analyses, such as competitive analysis, organizational analysis, or process analysis.

3. Set Goals

Now set goals to improve your business or to overcome the problems. Create a concept; you can use creative techniques to formulate them. Consider your time frame and your budget.

4. Implementation of Objectives

Now start to define measures to achieve your goals. Let professional consultants help you with this.

5. Evaluation of the Results

After you have implemented your goals and followed the individual steps, you should now control and evaluate the results. Check if you have reached your goals and see if you have been able to eliminate the problems. If the measures were not effective enough, you should analyze the problem again more exactly and if necessary go through the 5 steps again.
