Many corporations are struggling with the implementation of global outsourcing and offshoring projects, where increasing complexity and the need for agile response to changing conditions demand an integrated, trust-based relationship between the parties. HP and Symantec have developed an innovative global service partnership that responds to their evolving business needs. Executives from both organizations will discuss how this partnership was envisioned and implemented across the world.
Participants will learn firsthand how to deal with the myriad issues that can threaten to derail a global project of this kind and will get hands-on, detailed information about the main elements of this partnership, including the governance arrangements between provider and client.
