IT Outsourcing Management – removing roadblocks to optimum sourcing
CIOs are responsible both for IT Outsourcing Governance and for IT Outsourcing Management. Nuvalo advises CIOs on both. One of my favorite topics of discussion with CIOs on the IT Management side is management and alignment of supply and demand, and proactive vs reactive outsourcing management. IT Management responsibility is to organize and select resources, implement sourcing decisions and vendor policies, and to provide input on sourcing strategies to IT Outsourcing Governance. That is why in the assessment stage, we evaluate current sourcing decision rights, authority, sourcing guidelines, demand priorities and sourcing and vendor policies. We help clients identify and replace unnecessary roadblocks for arriving to an optimum sourcing mix and execution, with more productive governance guidelines.
