What is Impact of Change Analysis ?

Impact analysis is "looking before you make a step forward". It is making a “What-if” scenario analysis.

If some services, processes or IT of your business are disrupted because of a change, then what are the consequences? How will it affect your organization, your teams, your budget, your profit, your losses, your brand image and your future?

Impact of Change Analysis and Management is a (formal) way of collecting data and supposition in support of the pros and cons in any change or disruption to your business.

Good impact analysis will help you identify recovery strategies, prevention methods or means of mitigating impacts to the business.

Change impact analysis is sometimes also as: identifying the potential consequences of a change, or estimating what needs to be modified to accomplish a change. Another way of defining impact analysis is: "the evaluation of the many risks associated with the change, including estimates of the effects on resources, effort, and schedule".
