The Triad of Transition A smooth transition requires careful planning, execution and performance measurement. Adhering to the triad can ensure a timely handover. Knowledge Management Service Management Performance Management Newcomer gets handle on existing environment Measurable KPIs must be used to gauge progress Key incumbent personnel should be retained Establish communication channels Balanced Score Card can be used to measure engagement health Templates, checklists and best practices must be used 6 Define organization structure Stabilize operations and processes © 2014 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL

Conclusion  Transition to a new provider can turn hostile in extreme cases  Rigorous transition procedures must be followed  Self-help tools can accelerate the process and reduce risk, e.g.:  Knowledge acquisition process template  Domain readiness template  Service Assurance Kit  Sufficient checks and balances should be in place to ensure knowledge retention and continuous improvement 7 © 2014 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM | CONFIDENTIAL
