Outsource and Transition

This method is similar to the outsourcing service described above, except that the application(s) is transitioned back to the IS organization after the new project environment has been put into place. This method is useful for overcoming cultural barriers to change. Keane takes responsibility for the project using its own staff. The project team members implement the Keane process model and operate the project until all processes are fully tuned. At that stage, the IS organization can continue to outsource or it can reassume responsibility for the project. During the transition-out period, project team members fully train the IS staff members in all aspects of the project and the new processes. Cultural resistance is reduced by effectively moving IS staff members into a new assignment rather than attempting to change familiar processes on their current assignment. The IS organization can use its newly trained and experienced staff members to seed other projects in its portfolio.
