Best Practices in Course Changes

I work in a very small university where we don't have a dedicated Canvas support structure. I am part of a course building department that works with the academic departments to develop courses in Canvas. I'm in search of Best Practices in how this process of changing courses is managed (we don't give teachers admin-level permissions. Course changes must be vetted through our department, which is staffed with experienced PhD's who coordinate course development with faculty but are not part of that faculty). It presents some challenges for managing the requests for changes as we gain experience and receive more data from our students and faculty. Before this job, whatever LMS I used, I was the sole proprietor of all the content and its organization but that's not the case here so any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
