How do you ensure that pre-approved changes are indeed pre-approved and not being selected to skip approvals? I know actions that can be manually done to prevent this but I want to enable change implementers to use pre-approved changes more effectively.
My initial thought was to have a business rule that forces a change template is selected/required on submitting the change request but there other benefits to using templates outside of pre-approval and doesn’t really fix the change process avoidance issue.
How are you doing this at your organization? We tend to align with ITIL where possible but has been a 2 year journey thus far.
Thanks in advance.
