Contents of Exit Management Implementation Support
Step 1 : Agree the Exit plan is current.
Objectives, people and processes move on. The kick off meeting will confirm if anything has changed, what will be impacted and how planned timescales will remain.
Step 2 : Stakeholder and supplier communication
We’ll set up reporting systems so that weekly updates as to progress, accelerators that are speeding matters up, and hurdles slowing matters down, are visible.
Step 3 : Supplier responsibilities
We help to make sure that the supplier provides its obligated support to you (as per its “Expert Responsibilities”) to transfer your services; remaining on time and fit for purpose.
Step 4 : Governance technicalities
We’ll help you, your incumbent supplier and new supplier teams govern each of the steps of the exit process until your new service provider achieves the expected benefits.
Step 5 : On-going stakeholder facilitation
During termination, tensions between client, incumbent supplier and new suppliers runs high. By focusing on key items, we help to take the heat out of day to day interactions.
Step 6: Retaining contractual protections
Day to day project management behaviours can often undermine existing contractual protections during exit. We assure contractual protections stay in place.
Step 7 : Remaining on track
During implementation of the exit process, planned activities sometimes become misaligned to outcomes. We ensure all supplier and client activities align to expectations.
Step 8 : Supplier relationship/performance management
We lead on supporting optimisation of new relationships to ensure new service delivery remains fit for purpose on an on-going basis.
