out a review of the previously prepared plan and make any
changes necessary based on circumstances that may be different
from when it was first prepared. In some cases more information
will be available so things like the actual issues outstanding,
and system access information can be completed.
The plan should be updated in collaboration with Production
Support. It is a joint plan, not a Project Team plan. It is
likely that a number of activities will be required to prepare
for handover. These may range from small such as gathering
lists of current users, to significant such as physically
Ensure there is sufficient time to complete
these activities before handover. Leaving them pending at
handover is usually the genesis of a problem. If it cannot
be completed, add it as an item to the outstanding work and
re-assign it to the relevant person.
