When a system defect or workplace disruption hits, you need to act fast to ensure the enterprise can continue to function, your employees and associates are informed and productivity is maintained . And where better to designate the first responder than your service - help desk with a focus on IT Service Management (ITSM).

IT Service Management (ITSM) and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) have gained great acceptance as the change management discipline has grown over the last several years. The percentage of participants using a structured approach to manage change has grown from 55% to 75%. The reasons ITSM, SOA, and change management have become so important to organizations in recent years are:

- More and frequent changes - Change is occurring at an incredible pace in organizations today. The sheer quantity of changes is increasing, and changes are happening more frequently and faster than ever before. With such large amounts of change happening, organizations need a better and more structured way to manage the individuals in the organization impacted by all of these changes.

- Dynamics of the business environment - With the rapid change in the economic climate, CIOs and their IT organizations are now required to do more with less. Change management and change control is one-step that insures that changes are implemented correctly.

- Value system of empowerment - Over the last few years, value systems have shifted in many organizations. Old values of control and predictability have been replaced by new values to push decision-making, authority and responsibility down into the organization. While this shift has delivered many benefits, it has also made top-down changes more difficult and increased the resistance they face. Organizations with empowered work forces need to manage the human side of change more effectively than they did in the very hierarchical structure of the past.

- Competitive advantage - Many sources of competitive advantage have eroded as information moves more quickly and across the globe in seconds. In upcoming years, speed and agility will be a central differentiation in the market place. In addition, organizations that do not use change management cannot build their internal competency too quickly and effectively implement change. Strong change management competencies within an organization are a key source of competitive advantage in coming years.

The positive implications of change control management are:

- CIOs and enterprise executives demonstrate their own and the organization's commitment to manage all of the process in around solutions being implemented.
- Employees gain a solid understanding of why a change is being implemented.
- Everyone engages in the solution being implemented.
- Training is used to build knowledge in the implication of the change being implemented.
- Resistance is identified and dealt with early in the process.
- Communications are segmented and customized for each audience, answering the questions that they care about.
- Momentum is built throughout different areas and levels within the enterprise.
- Changes are less painful to the organization and to the employees.
- A coalition of support among senior leaders and managers creates momentum throughout the organization.
- Probability of meeting project objectives is increased.
- The enterprise builds a history of successful change.
