Organisations invest immense amounts of time, resources and attention in their software projects. But all too often, when it's time to transfer the finished project to new 'owners', they settle for the most superficial classroom training, documentation and code walkthroughs. These conventional approaches to knowledge transfer often fail, dramatically reducing the value of new systems in production. You can do much better – and Software Ownership Transfer will show you how.

This is the first practical, hands-on guide to knowledge transfer in today's agile environments. Using a realistic, large-scale case study, ThoughtWorks expert Vinod Sankaranarayanan shows how to elevate knowledge transfer from 'necessary evil' to an activity full of agility and innovation, and bring together multiple organisations and cultures to make ownership transfer work.

Sankaranarayanan explains why mere documentation of error reports and processes isn't enough, and shows how successfully to craft a knowledge transfer programme that's more substantive and effective. Along the way, he offers guidance on overcoming the commercial compromises and personal tensions often associated with transferring systems to new ownership; and on transforming mere 'knowledge transfer' into something much better: 'taking ownership'.
