Providing flexibility

1 May 2008

In this issue's Law Update, Paul Cinnamond looks at how buyers in IT can ensure contracts are flexible enough to keep up with rapid changes in technology. He recommends moving toward output-based contracting by focussing on the desired results rather than the specific products/services you'll use to achieve those results.

Have you had any experience with output-based contracting?

Is this the way forward for buyers in the IT sector? And other sectors?
