Changes in job responsibilities, loss of key personnel, or even changes in shift hours can lead to serious incidents with potentially severe consequences. Organizational Management of Change (OMOC) is attracting increasing scrutiny from regulators and corporate stakeholders, prompting the publication of the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) “Guidelines for Managing Process Safety Risks During Organizational Change”.
Gateway has configured Microsoft SharePoint to manage the organizational change business process. The OMOC process can be decomposed into a number of states. The collection and sequence of states is termed the lifecycle. The essential difference between different kinds of MOC’s (e.g. organizational, facility, etc.) is that they have different lifecycles. A lifecycle for an Organizational MOC is shown below.
The diagram indicates that the lifecycle begins with the Initiation state. The OMOC is “promoted” from one state to the next. An OMOC can also be “demoted” from a state to any of its previous states.
