Point of No Return

Point of No Retur

Point of No Return - You typically want to get a final "go / no go" decision from your sponsor before you proceed to implementation on your project.

You then proceed to actual implementation with the thought that if there are problems, you can always go back using your rollback option.

You can uninstall the changes or perhaps continue to run the old solution while the new one is getting fixed.

However, in some cases, there is not a good rollback option. That is, when you decide to implement the new solution, you are basically committed to moving forward - you don't have a viable rollback option.

When this type of implementation occurs, there is always a date that is referred to as the "point of no return." The point of no return is a date when certain activities occur that commit you to proceeding to implementation. And, once you commit to implement, there are not viable options for rolling back the changes.

For example, you may be implementing a solution that dramatically alters the way that a monthly financial closeout process works.

The closeout process is not in effect until the end of the month, but it requires changes to the data entry throughout the entire month. Implementation starts at the beginning of the month, even though the majority of the impact does not occur until the end of the month.

In this case, you make a commitment to implement at the beginning of the month. If you discover a problem during that month, or at financial close, you may not have the ability to rollback the changes since all of the work for the current month reflects the new changes.

You are just forced to fix the problems as they occur. In this case, once you placed your original changes into production at the beginning of the month, you passed a "point of no return." At that point, you are live, and any problems need to be fixed going forward.
