Might I suggest that change management id good even in a shop of one.

It documents and creates a methodical process for changes
leaving tracks for someone to follow.

Helps so no one inadvertently fails to recall changes of the
past few months, years, or the prior person/staff


Change management is a wonderful programmer & systems tool
to enhance productivity and quality
