Previous discussions have covered approaches and large-scale change so this workshop will look to tackle the processes and frameworks behind a smooth transition and the culture and people needed to make it successful.
Despite being common-place in everyday business life, large-scale changes such as M&As and divestments hold fear, uncertainty and doubt for many of those directly affected.
In most instances, IT will have been considered as part of the due diligence process, with plans made and costs determined for integration, systems rationalisation, and contract and service transition.
But with IT at the core of business processes and capabilities, putting this into practice can make the difference between a highly successful 'marriage' or mutually beneficial separation, or one that is potentially damaging both financially and to the brand.
The Corporate IT Forum has logged over a decade's worth of best practice emanating from high-profile business change and continues to develop and facilitate discussion and learning around this most challenging area for IT.
New experiences and new perspectives will strengthen and broaden your understanding of how to best manage the impact of large-scale, structural change on IT.
Who should attend
The final agenda will be developed through consultation amongst attending delegates, but topic areas are likely to include:
Frameworks and processes to facilitate change
Hand-overs; managing people and culture
Planning and benefiting from an M&A/divestment 'team of excellence'
Impact on Contracts
- Transition Service Agreements - Terms and Conditions
