Failed change clarification

When should we classify a change as failed?
should a change resolve the issue to be successful? (if the change is not the solution to the problem, should it be tagged as failed?)

What ever your own Change Management process and policy deem as the definition of a failed change is

It is actually up to you

I use a number of Change closure codes - Hopefully this may help:

SUCCESSFUL: Change ran to plan and achieved it's objectives.

SUCCESSFUL WITH ISSUES: Change achieved it's objectives, but did not run to plan (ran over time, required extra, unplanned steps, etc)

CANCELLED: Change was never implemented. Must be declared CANCELLED before it's planned start date/time

FAILED: Change did NOT meet it's planned objectives

BACKED OUT: Change did not meet it's planned objectives, and introduced issues into the environment requiring that the change be backed out and the environment returned to it's previous, baseline state.

Home this helps. Your mileage may vary.

Great deffinitions there, although I would say if a change was backed out, it failed.

I would agree that a backed out change has actually failed to deliver its objectives.

If your change causes an incident it should be marked as failed
