Delivering successful outsourcing projects

Date: 13 March 2012

Outsourcing remains on the agenda of many organisations as a key tool to reduce cost and increase competitiveness.  While the recent economic uncertainty saw many potential projects placed on hold or delayed, the new year has brought with signs that this is beginning to change and that new deals are once again being given the green light.

Please join us for this seminar which will provide an overview of the key legal and practical considerations that will face any customer organisation seeking to deliver a successful outsourcing project in 2012. We will cover the entire lifecycle of a transaction and the insights provided will be of equal relevance to IT and technology outsourcings and business process deals.
