The ITO Governance Challenge: Overcoming Barriers to Achieve Operational and Financial Transparency

by Terri Hart-Sears
The challenge of managing a large outsourcing relationship is an important responsibility shared between the enterprise, the consultant and the service provider to ensure a program’s overall success.

This ISG white paper explores the barriers to asset management governance success and how to overcome them.
