No discussion of GPOs would be complete without touching on the need to have change management procedures in place. Change management procedures are rules that are used to control when and where changes can be made to GPOs. GPOs assist in the administrative control over users and computers and should be treated as a critical part of your Active Directory environment. Changing a setting within a GPO could affect the way users are allowed to work or how they are controlled within the network. Without change management procedures in place, users who control GPOs will not have the proper procedures to follow when implementing changes.
In the following sections we will discuss what goes into the change management procedures and why they are important.
