Key to transition is to know what needs to be done in the future state, who needs to do what, and the communication of this to the stakeholders who will be impacted by the change.  Some of these changes may be temporary, and other changes may be ongoing.  For example, there may be changes required to existing support functions and processes to support the implementation of a new capability.  

If the transition presents too many hurdles, it can undo delivery and adoption very quickly.  The best analogy is building a house.  It takes months, sometimes years to build a house, yet it can often be demolished in a day.  The same can occur if transition is not planned for in the strategic analysis phase and managed carefully through delivery.

How can business analysts prepare for transition in projects, whether agile or waterfall?  What do business analysts need to do so that end users can embrace and adopt the new service or product?
