4. Organisation changes

Many organisations are very fluid for example

  • Departments change roles
  • Business processes change
  • Staff change
  • Data storage and data processing changes

The system and its surrounding support organisation may need to react to these planned changes well ahead of time. A regular review should be undertaken to take account of this.

For example,

  • A new department is planned and the system needs to be physically expanded to support them
  • A business process such as customer ordering is to change - this will require a system update
  • A new group of users is planned - this will need training plans to be in place
  • The company has started to operate in a new market and sales are booming - this requires additional data storage and faster processing
