Weds 8th October, 2:40pm
ICT transformation projects are inherently complex and risky because they overhaul an organisation’s entire technology base and impact the core business processes needed to flourish.
Mei Fern Johnson talks about what to do and what not to do, focusing on case studies from New Zealand and Australia. She will break down a transformation project to its key phases and then discuss the do's and don'ts of each phase. The discussion will go beyond legal principles to project management, procurement and support of the technical IT team working on the project.
