I am sure you have come across this term many times so let us explore what it mean, a Change Control Board (CCB) is a group of people (or committee) whose main responsibility is to make decisions regarding whether or not proposed changes should be implemented. The change control board normally has project sponsor or a representative of the sponsor, product manager, project manager and BA, they may also include representative from each department/division for better visibility in the organization and to take informed decision.
The main purpose of the CCB is to ensure that proper (and agreed) process is followed for every change request; CCB will ensure that an impact analysis is performed and cost of the change is derived which will used to accept or reject the changes.
Depending upon the authority granted to the CCB they may approve the changes or have to go to steering group and/or project sponsor for approval.
CCB may also be responsible for change management and informing affected individuals/departments, if this is the case make sure you choose people who are influential as they can play a very important role in managing and communicating the changes.
