Definitions for "Change Control Board"
(CCB). Changes to configuration items are normally managed by a group called the Change Control Board (CCB).
A group of stakeholders responsible for approving or rejecting changes to project baselines. In order to to this, they must know the scope of the change and its impact on the cost and schedule. They must either reject the change, adopt it immediately, or adopt it at some point in the future. In the latter two cases, the project will have a new scope and baselined plans and estimates must be amended accordingly.
The change control board analyzes the impact of requested changes to the software and has the authority to approve or deny any change requests once development is underway. Before the project begins, the list of CCB members should be written down and agreedupon, and each CCB member should understand why the change control process isneeded and what their role will be in it.
