Global Challenges and Solutions in IT Business II

From a viable proposal to a successful delivery.

This course focuses on the complexity of how to keep a contract with a duration of three to seven years profitable for both the IT supplier and the customer. There are several challenges that have to be identified, assessed, priced, and mitigated to keep both parties in line with their expectations during a long business relationship.

In the first lecture you will meet CGI's Head of Operations and a Senior Manager from Accenture. They will, together with an associated professor from DSV, introduce you to the course. The following six lectures will be given by a team of experts from CGI. Then, Accenture will share their knowledge in the final three lectures.

Needless to say, DSV will provide you with the academic resources to critically evaluate real life business versus theories. And, if you find gaps between the two, practitioners will be there to explain how it works for you.
