The purpose of having a standard, documented change control process is to ensure that changes are made within a project in a consistent manner and the appropriate stakeholders are informed of the state of the product, changes to it and the cost and schedule impact of these changes.
How to Staff
The Change (or Configuration) Control Board (CCB), the board that oversees the change process, consists of representatives from all interested parties, including customers, developers, and users. In a small project, a single person, such as the project manager or designer, may play this role. In the Rational Unified Process, this is shown by the Change Control Manager role.
