One of the most difficult questions to answer in any IT deal is “What do we do now that the vendor has broken our trust?” When a vendor breaks a promise there are inevitably losses, so the next question that emerges is, “What type of losses are customers exposed to?” There are all types of losses that occur when technology does not perform as it should. Some losses can be minimal in nature, while others can simply be devastating.

The meat and potatoes of this session start to become clear when speaker Elgin Ward discusses and starts to solve the next question for the class, “When such losses occur how do you recover the losses from the vendor, and more important, how do you avoid such losses in the future?” Additionally, the class will examine vendors have a tendency to break promises.

The events for this training session will take place at McGladrey LLP, located at 4801 Main Street, Suite 400 (4th Floor) in Kansas City, Missouri. It is only a half-day session starting at 8:30 a.m. with a list price of $295 for nonmembers of CAUCUS, while members attend for $195. McGladrey LLP has been generous enough to offer their training venue for this public event to take place.

In 1994 International Computer Negotiations (ICN) formed CAUCUS, the Association of IT Acquisition Professionals, establishing the only member-based association serving the specialized needs of technology acquisition professionals. To start the organization, ICN rebranded some of its best events and its popular ICNnet bulletin board under the CAUCUS name. Over the years a variety of other features have been added to benefit the members of CAUCUS, which leads all other associations in this field.
