Project handover is a process of transferring a project from one team to another team which is supposed to keep working on this project in the context of certain duties, for example it could be a handover of software product from the developers to the customers.
There are different forms of handover – for example: forced handover when the previous team fails to accomplish the work (due to some technical, financial or political reasons), and the project is transferred in an incomplete state, so that the next team possessing necessary resources can proceed working at it and will finally finish it; and expected handover, like handing over the project’s products from producers to customers.
Reasoning from the right format, the team should prepare different portfolios of documentation helping successors to get into work quickly, without confusion and defections. For example, if it aims to to support team, then a producer should ensure proper trainings of support specialists and provide technical documentation, and if this is a handover to operations, then producers should ensure proper on-the-job trainings and examinations for the operators, along with delivering all-round user manuals.
CentriQS allows project teams to hand over their projects by using the Files view. Teammates can keep their work documents as files or links to files, and other teams can access the documents in the Files view. The software provides sharable interface modes which can be used for scheduling and reporting of tasks and for tracking the status of files and documents.
