PMI’s IT & Telecom Community of Practice webinar with Stephane Chalvin, PMP
Did you know that Transition management practitioners have suggested that over two thirds of failed outsourcing relationships are due to transition-related challenges (Beulen, Tiwari, van Heck, 2011)?
Partenaire de DantotsuPM
The lack of specific literature on this subject, has led to many misconceptions, starting with vocabulary, which can sometimes lead to misunderstandings when discussing transition with non-experts.
An IT Outsourcing relationship always starts with a Transition, which is typically a complex program composed of several interrelated projects which can affect nearly every key aspect of the client business.
Stéphane Chalvin, ITIL, PMP
The goal of this webinar is to give you a high level understanding of transitions challenges in the context of an IT Outsourcing relationship. We will first describe the key phases of an IT Outsourcing and the associated vocabulary. We will then focus on the Transition, looking at what makes it different from many IT projects. This presentation does not require any technical knowledge and will be easy to follow.

The phrase “technical debt” has become a commonly used phrase in software development.
Technical debit is analogous to financial debt; build up too much and you’ll start paying more in “interest” and “principle” than you can invest in future value. This webinar will discuss what technical debt is, what causes it, and how to deal with it. Both management and engineering techniques in an agile development environment will be reviewed.
These sessions are broadcast live, completely free, and available to anyone around the world – though space in each session is limited!
