It depends what you have to change ....  

If you know the different parameters beforehand, you can use separate
notebooks for each parameter, or you can iterate over the parameters in a
single notebook.  The last is more automatic, but the first may be
prefereable if you have large notebooks with lots of calculations & graphs.
