Sourcing Governance Foundation  [P-SGF2]


Course topic

When IT services are fulfilled by external specialists, the effect is that entirely new demands are placed on IT governance.Thereby, operational control of IT services is outsourced and managed by commercial relationships, -contracts and -coordination.

Best practice demonstrates how to implement and operate sourcing governance. In this process, both the business' own employees as well as the service provider must be aware of the key principles and the outsourcing concept in order to build and maintain a successful customer-supplier relationship.

In this course, you will gain enhanced knowledge of the outsourcing- and governance concept.An interactive approach combined with lectures, discussions and the best practice sourcing governance framework ensures sustained learning.You can optimally prepare yourself for the optional foundation examination through the use of real-life case studies.
