First, you’ll explore how to evaluate the outcome of the change against the original objectives.

Finally, you'll learn how to properly go about obtaining sponsor approval to close out the change effort. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge necessary to properly close a change effort, and be prepared for this section of the CCMP exam.
