A Management of Change Procedure Template is a document used to establish a systematic process for managing and evaluating changes to an organization. It helps ensure that any changes are properly documented, communicated, and evaluated against pre-set goals and objectives. The template consists of a set of questions, forms and checklists to ensure that all aspects of the change process are properly managed, including identifying the need for change, analyzing the impact of the change, developing and implementing a plan, monitoring and evaluating the results, and communicating the outcomes. This template is a useful tool to ensure the smooth and successful transition of any change within the organization.
Please note that this checklist template is a hypothetical appuses-hero example and provides only standard information. The template does not aim to replace, among other things, workplace, health and safety advice, medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, or any other applicable law. You should seek your professional advice to determine whether the use of such a checklist is appropriate in your workplace or jurisdiction.
