Managing The Transition To Outsourcing Making Detailed Plans

The key to a successful transition is a carefully and thoroughly drawn up plan listing all the events that must take place and their timing, including equipment transfers, data and software transfers, people transfers, and who (client and vendor people) is going to do what. Hopefully, much of the transition process has been spelled out in the contract; but even so, there are further details and dates to be made more specific, such as people's names instead of job names, and actual dates instead of time periods.

The transition is a time for the people on both sides to become acquainted with each other. Full discussion and conversations are encouraged during this period to try to establish working relationships that will help in the continuing operation of the contract. The liaison representatives of the client and the vendor should take the lead in coordinating the design of the transition plans, as they will take a major role in their implementation.
