A well-defined handover process model is imperative and critical for succeeding with the transfer of a software system from one party to another. Despite this, there still do not exist any up-to date handover process models. Recently, however, we have developed EM3: Handover Framework aiding organizations in constructing their own handover process models. In this paper, we apply and evaluate EM3: Handover Framework in one Swedish software organization via participatory observation. Our goal is to examine the framework’s applicability and usefulness in a real-world industrial scenario. The handover process studied was of a self-to-self type and it was conducted in a project parking context. Our results show that our framework is fully applicable in an industrial handover setting. Almost all of its activities were relevant and fully applied in the context studied.
