How much notice should your manager, client and project get about your coming paternity leave?...especially if it coincides with a Go Live

As much as possible. More than 9 months notice would be weird though.

As much as possible. If you were the client or manager, how much lead time would you want? Give them that much

Any chance of you doing the go live and bouncing? It could negatively impact your performance (just speculating) don't know this fo sho.

@accenture, the go live is really 2 months after our due date so I’d rather transition out well before the go live date.

I delayed mine by six weeks to accommodate for go live. It worked out for both myself and the company.

I generally try to shoot for the end of the engagement to switch jobs. I used to give 2 weeks but since there is so much butthurt from people when you quit I give only a couple days now (this is assuming I am leaving during a project transition). I have done this several times. No issues and good feedback even though I gave only a couple days.

My school has been face to face for 7 weeks. The promise is that the kids on the school bus have to wear masks. One of my students recorded and uploaded a video to Youtube. In the video the kids were 3 to a seat, no masks, hopping across seats hitting each other. 😐 I had the kid take it off Youtube and sent the video to administration. What are we doing? It’s sickening.
