Impact Analysis Template
Format: Report / Log
The purpose of an impact analysis is to evaluate the effects, both pro and con, of an item under consideration—anything from solutions to a stated problem to a pending organizational change. In order to be sure that the team understands all the ramifications of a possible change and not just the obvious ones, it's important to consider the situation from multiple perspectives. Keep in mind that this document isn’t a risk analysis. This is a high-level description of the risks and mitigation plan/actions.
