Gentlemen,

Before deploy any new changes, do you think Release Mgmnt need to describe all those new feature/functionality to Operation Support staff? And then go for deployment.

Or should be after deployed once Release Mgmnt would found new feature/functionality working correctly.

What ITIL says? And your real life experience says?

Thanks.

Before I answer this question, may I enquire why you do not wish

I suppose it entirely depends on what you wish to encompass in the scope of your release management.

You could take the view that the operational documentation should exist before submission to release management (or even before submission to change management) because it is (or should be) part and parcel of the product.

Or you could design a system whereby it was incorporated into the release process. But I do not see how you can have attained operational acceptance to go ahead before the documentation has been presented to and validated by the operations section. So it surely needs to be in place before the implementation.

My real life experience suggests that in the work environment people do not like surprises.

In most cases, I'd be looking for ways to give anyone who is affected by the change a heads up on when it's going to happen and what the changes are, and the risks, impact etc. Whether this is something you should be doing or someone else depends on your release process.
