The X4MIS® Change Management Methodology was originally developed over 10 years through the  interactions and experience with organisations with real life change requirements.  The methodology has transformed multiple times from the original version developed and used in the UK in 2007.  The framework has evolved most recently through the collaboration of expert resource in preparation for its release in 2021.

The X4MIS Methodology is not a detailed 100 page document, it’s a collection of activities and process (a smorgasbord) you can pick and choose for your requirements.

We expect ongoing growth and development of collateral through multiple collaborators, continually updated on the website ensuring in the future there will be numerous versions of change artefacts to choose from.
