An essential road map for the prescription for IT project success.

This how-to manual provides a comprehensive and detailed examination of all commercial, risk management, contracting and legal issues that arise in the course of planning, negotiating, documenting and closing IT transactions. An "end-to-end" guide for all business managers and professionals involved in an IT transaction, this publication enables all participants to see, at each stage of the transaction, how all parts of the transaction and contract fit together to ensure the projects success.

This book will serve as the single reference guide to help them successfully and effectively navigate large, mission critical or complex commercial, contracting, compliance, and management challenges to their enterprise's IT transactions.

  • Planning and preparation for a successful transaction
