Trying to find some information on how to implement standard changes. That is how is the pre-approval of standard changes done. Who role is it to do the pre approval? What are the inputs and what is the process surrounding this?'
There are (many) different kinds of changes which are considered as standard change. Usually, each one of them has separate procedure how to fulfill them. In order to have efficient Standard Change Management process in place, you need to have following:
1. clearly defined procedure - usually defined by Change Manager or someone from Technical Management. This also includes triggers i.e. how to initiate that procedure (and who is allowed to do that)
2. Responsibilities - i.e. who is doing what
3. clearly communicated procedure to all relevant/involved parties
