Creating New Departments

Successfully creating new departments require that various company systems be updated to capture newly defined department structures. Once the need for a new department arises, follow these steps:

  1. Create an issue using the Department Creation Checklist template.
  2. In the issue, add the appropriate team members from each department included in the checklist.
  3. Disclose the nature of the new department. Is the new department simply a name change, or there is a structural modification?
  4. Provide all detail necessary to ensure team members are assigned to the newly created departments.
