IT Outsourcing - 11 Short Steps to Success: An Insider's View

My first major role in outsourcing was the delivery of two major projects utilising an onshore / offshore model in the late 1990s and early 2000s, which was in the pioneering period of IT delivery from offshore. In 2002 I took up the role of IT Contract and Relationship Manager for a major energy company, undertaking a major sourcing initiative and managing the commercials behind one of the largest outsourcing contracts of its kind up to that time. Since that time I have worked on small, medium and major IT outsourcing deals, sometimes on the supply side, most often on the client side. This book distils into an hour’s reading much of what I have learnt and provides an essential insight into specifying, sourcing and delivering a successful IT outsourcing project.
