There are two sides to quiet periods or closing business over holidays.  We might do this to ease our schedules, or vendors may do so.  In either case, there is a need to plan and properly communicate with those impacted.  Lack of planning can cause all manner of headaches that have no useful solution.

Launching a Product or Service

The most common of these challenges in my recent experiences is dealing with a flood of year-end deployments.  Sites like the Apple Store, Google Play, and Amazon are sent a larger-than-normal number of applications.  Thus, typical response times suffer.  This response may be expected, or it can derail your launch plans.
