"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There can be questions like:

How will you identify the areas affected by a change?
How will you prioritize if change effects too much?
How will break and assign change to multiple resources to get this done efficiently?
what will be your merging and deployment strategy?

To me above are important points.

Here it's:

*
How will you identify the areas affected by a change?
 In order to identify areas affected. We need to evaluate following:
 - Relevant code
 - Database objects containing relevant logic. These can include Stored procedures, views, functions or triggers etc.
 - Documentation requring updates.

*

How will you prioritize if change effects too much?
 - If change is big then we should plan it in a separate release instead of releasing it with other features. Releasing with other features will add time to test and impact on change development and in resolving depencies with other application feature requests.
*

How will break and assign change to multiple resources to get this done efficiently?
 - In case change is time taking/lengthy and we have resources available. We can divide single task to multiple resource who further can take advantage of source control's branching and merging features to develop in parallel and then can merge to reduce to development time. Say there are two new tabs that needs to be developed on an existing form. We can divide each tab to separate developer to reduce dev time.

*

what will be your merging and deployment strategy?
 - It depends on the number of features requested in a release. We can plan to release big and critical change requests in a separate release separating them from non-critical and less lengthy points....

I hope it helps.
