• All - Gather links to existing change management approaches and documentation.  Add links and descriptions in Existing Change Management Approaches working document.

Meeting Materials


Recording: Change Management Types of Change: LABEL_CHANGE, NEW (2021-06-07)


Notes were taken directly in the Types of Changes and other working documents.

Future Topics

  • Notification to a single institution when a requested entity that was missing becomes available.  This will likely be outside the main change management stream.
  • Value of diagraming to express changes as a means of conveying information around where data is being produced, where it goes, etc.
  • Partial splits and partial merges.
