Outsourcing: Control, Risk & Value
The trend in outsourcing IT continues to grow - both in the number and value of outsourcing transactions and in the variety of services which are outsourced. IT may wish to reduce costs by outsourcing, but this can conflict with what the business may require.
Some of the most common issues faced by supplier / contract managers include:
- Addressing the balance of power between customer and outsourcer
- Contractual negotiation and re-negotiation
- Reviewing the risk to the business: who is accountable and responsible for the service?
Participants will be able to share experiences and develop their approaches to outsourcing, governance, risk and best practice.
