Change Request Management (ChaRM) requires a lot of effort and can be challenging to implement. Theo van Kaathoven has come up with a method for your initial implementation that he calls CharRM “light,” which allows you to achieve maximum benefits with less effort. Before you begin working with ChaRM light, however, here is a quick list of need-to-know information.

Change Request Management (ChaRM) light refers to a simplified strategy of implementing ChaRM. By using some functionality in a limited way (e.g., SAP CRM transactions) and using other functionality in a specific way (e.g., the naming of transport requests), you can significantly decrease the time and effort involved with implementing ChaRM.

Here is some background information on what you should know before you begin working with ChaRM light.
