Streamline your change control process

Whether you work in IT or marketing, projects often need to be adjusted while work is in progress. Without an organized structure, critical change requests can fall through the cracks. 

  • Change requests are made by email and can get lost or overlooked
  • There is no single location to prioritize or manage change-related tasks
  • Managers struggle to execute unplanned changes and balance workloads

With Wrike’s change control process template, you can easily create a structure to alleviate these obstacles. 

  • Requests are automated and stored in a single folder so team members can all access important information 
  • Use the workflow template to create a process for each change request and follow it through to completion
  • Determine priorities based on pre-built change impact and urgency formulas
