As IT projects increase in scope and value, the contracts governing these services are becoming increasingly complex. Contracting with third party provides is still a viable and profitable means by which companies can control costs and improve process efficiency.

It is critical for you to ensure that you have negotiated the best deal up-front rather than discover mid-way through an IT contract that the terms do not adequately meet your organisation's needs. Unfortunately it is often the case that little pre-consideration is put into the risks associated with signing an IT outsourcing contract; this masterclass addresses this issue in both an informative and practical way.

Sherree Westell is a highly experienced contract lawyer and has acted on instructions from companies of all sizes and on both sides of the IT contract line, giving her unique insight into how IT contracts should be put together and enabling her to ensure that you have considered all of the key risks when entering in to an IT contract. This masterclass will be particularly relevant to project and programme managers, strategic IT managers and all professionals looking to ensure that they are covering all of their bases when entering in to an IT contract.

This masterclass is not a generic negotiation skills workshop, but rather is specifically designed for the needs of IT and project managers in technology functions.
