ITIL & BS15000 ITSM Group :: View topic - What is differences between change mgmt and release mgmt?
Change Management includes all changes to which may potentially have an impact on the IT Service. This can include changes from batch job scheduling, access priveleges, performance testing and hardware moves to VPN configuration changes and beyond.
Not all changes result in releases, not all projects result in release. Release Management should establish the policy for moving Software (and related HW and documentation) from development to production. This includes creating the Release Plan which defines the requirements for testing, acceptance, training, support and deployment
