Re: [epf-dev] Renaming "Change Management" practice to "Basic Change Management"


Hi Ken,

I think the point is that without the qualifier, it makes it hard to name alternative change management practices.
In other words, if we have 3 change management practice alternatives, and one is called change management, it's hard from the name to know what kind of change management is being described
by the practice.  Also, it may seem unfair for us to claim copyright to "change management" - by adding some kind of qualifier, at least we are only claiming our brand of change management.
Another suggestion from Per is "Informal Change Management".
Is that better than "Basic"?

Note that this practice, as it stands, just has one task, which is to submit change requests, and otherwise changes are really being addressed as part of
work item management done by the iterative development practice.  It's not a traditional formal change management approach with a CCB and unique states for change requests.

Re: [epf-dev] Renaming "Change Management" practice to "Basic Change        Management"





I don't know I think you got it right the first time.  Firstly, I don't think its fair for any one group to claim copyright to the term Change Management. Secondly the term "Basic" is almost pejorative and somehow diminishes the importance of the practice (think about Basic Project Management, Basic Architecture etc).  Thirdly, I'm not sure we need a qualifier, one would think the context would be sufficient if we put "Basic" before one practice what does that mean about the other practices.

Chris Sibbald and I would like to make this change to address concerns raised by reviewers.

The basic concern is that they expected from the name that this would be a formal change management practice, and it's not.

I plan to make this change tomorrow, so if there are any concerns at all with this, please let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks,
