When doing a handover, you need to have a process! I have seen many times how things go wrong. The right person didn’t document everything. The person who receive the handover didn’t know what to do. And this resulted in a formality that was never completed. It is a recipe for a disaster.
When you have a process you need to follow, it limits you, but this constraint is a good thing. You know what you need to do, tick some boxed and move on.
Then you and the other person will be satisfied with the end result.
