Roles and Activities > Change Control Manager

The change control manager role oversees the change control process. This role is usually played by a Configuration (or Change) Control Board (CCB) and consists of representatives from all interested parties, including customers, developers, and users. In a small project, a single team member, such as the project manager or software architect, may play this role.

The change control manager is also responsible for defining the Change Request Management Process, which is documented in the CM Plan.
