What you’ll find inside:

  • a list of all the pre-handover activities,
  • a detailed description of the handover process,
  • a compilation of all the handover artifacts,
  • a robust software development process plan.

Software development projects can get pretty complicated. Usually, the process goes one of three ways:

  1. You create the project yourself in-house from start to finish.
  2. You outsource the work to a software house that builds it for you.
  3. You switch from one outsourcing partner to another for some reason.

The third case tends to get especially tricky sometimes. However, even when you’re only starting a cooperation with your first software vendor, there’s a number of things you should keep in mind if you want your project handover to go smoothly.

We wrote an article about handing over your project to a software outsourcing partner where we describe 10 best practices to follow that will help you make sure your handover process is a success.

This step-by-step checklist was designed to make you even more prepared. It’s a detailed collection of every little piece of the puzzle we could think of to support you throughout the process as best we can.

Keep the checklist handy before, during, and after the handover to save yourself a whole lot of trouble!
