Multiple Trends Affect Change and Configuration
Management
PRESSURES
BUSINESS IMPACT
• Demand for more tailored products
More product configurations / options to manage,
more complicated change impact
• Fierce global competition
Shorter development cycles, need to accommodate
changes faster
• Growth in global outsourcing
Need to effectively coordinate more participants in
product development
• Increase in product complexity
Multiple authoring tools used, so data must be
managed across disparate information systems
• Increase in regulations
Need to adapt products for compliance
Takeaway: Take Control of Change to Stay Competitive

…Potential benefits are top line, not just cost savings
“An efficient change process can cut up to 33% off of the
typical product development cycle time.” (McKinsey & Company)
