What is Change Request Cycle Time?

 , updated on December 09, 2016
Change request cycle time is the average time from acceptance of a change request to its successful launch. Acceptance implies that work on a change request is initiated. In other words, the change request backlog doesn't impact the cycle time. It is perfectly normal to have a large backlog of change requests. Change requests are often ideas for improvement that may never be prioritized.
