Re: Change Management: how long are approved changes valid for

With a specific date and time in mind, all "normal" changes should reviewed by the designated change authority (change manager, CAB, etc.) with an express purpose of ensuring that all possible conflicts/collisions and risks are mitigated. I agree that an "approved" change should be for the date and ...

Re: Downgrading Incidents - Multiple impacts

Great question. It’s my opinion that this was one incident and by it being a “P1” it was a major incident. If you lower the priority of the incident ticket to a “p2”, then unless you have configured your tool to capture how it was handled (it was a P1) and what it was reduced to for other purposes (...

Re: Data Center Swings and Change records

Great question! Unless it's a "standard change" (ITIL definition), any change to the production environment should be required to follow the change management process. In environments that have fully automated CI/CD, that may be an exception, but it doesn't sound like your organization has that leve...

Problem Management different between ITILv3 and ITIL4?

A fellow ITIL'er was asking if the materials for problem management were different in the ITILv3 and ITIL4 versions. While I do think the ITILv3 problem management materials were informative, I do think the ITIL4 problem management practice guide provides information and insights that are better tha...

Re: Incident or Request?

Greetings,

I see that your question has been up for a while but I'm just now finding it. Did you get the information and feedback you were looking for by now? How is your incident process handling those situations now?

Re: Rollback Plan Template

Hello, You asked this question a long time ago, but in case you didn't get a reply, I would offer that a roll back should "un do" all of what was done to implement a change. In other words, the roll-back plan should mirror the implementation plan steps and activities, just in reverse order. For thos...

Re: Who's responsible for a Change from end to end?

This is a good question. It’s very common for new change managers to ask. This is what I recommend: 1. Require Non-Technical users to submit a service request ticket asking for the change they want to be made. 2. Allow technical teams (e.g. software developers, web support teams, infrastructure team...

Re: When to open Problem Ticket after incident occurred ?

Greetings, Problem investigations require the time of your most valuable people resources (technical teams and managers). Experience shows that the constraints of people and their time is the biggest factor in the organizations ability to work on or not work on problem resolution. For this reason, o...

ITILDave, Over the past 20 years I have worked in companies that have developed their own software and systems, which would include the design, build, transition to operations and operational support.

Hello Ben, it's been a while since you first posted, so I'm not sure you have what you need. I would like to offer that standardizing processes across all sites, especially if all sites will use the same ITSM tool (e.g. ServiceNow) will be critical to your overall service quality. Sometimes knowing ...

Re: Change freeze and staging environment

Generally, a “freeze” is in place to protect the environment from disruptions/incidents that would be caused by a change. Although it’s not completely clear how many environmental stages your changes progress through, if your “staging” environment is the next closest environment to your production e...
