During the transition period (the time when both the old and new solutions are operational), the
enterprise may need to operate both solutions in parallel, move information between the new and old solution, conduct
training to enable stakeholders to effectively operate the new solution, and so forth. In addition to developing the
solution itself, the implementation team will likely have to develop additional capabilities to support the
Transition requirements are elicited, analyzed, managed, and communicated by performing the same tasks
as the other requirements. The difference is not in the methods for defining them, but in the inputs, the nature of
transition requirements, and in that they cease to be relevant once the existing solution is eliminated.
In instances where there is not an existing solution and the new solution is adding an entirely new
capability to the enterprise rather than extending and improving an existing capability, the transition requirements do
not need to be analyzed.
