Maddocks hosts tech guru for Trans-Tasman Business Circle

Leading law firm Maddocks today hosted the premier executive network for Australia and New Zealand, The Trans-Tasman Business Circle, which was addressed by guest speaker Clive Whincup, Chief Information Officer Woolworths Limited.

Mr Whincup spoke with the guests, made up of senior members of Australia and New Zealand’s leading private and public organisations, of the importance of diversity and creativity in securing technology solutions within organisations. He offered insight into his time since being appointed as CIO in early 2014, including his success in implementing a customer centred design framework, improving the availability of critical IT resources and driving benefits realisation for the recent Google Chrome implementation including embedding a new level of productivity, capability and flexibility across Woolworth Limited’s brands.

Maddocks has recently launched the Technology Procurement Handbook, a seven-chapter guide for organisations who are looking to source and implement technology into their operations. Partner and author Jeff Goodall offers, “Technology procurement is a fact of life. Technology products and services play a critical role in every organisation, in both the private and public sectors. Organisations simply cannot function without third party software, telecommunication systems and hardware, such as phones and computers.

“Poorly managed technology procurement can lead to cost blow-outs, lengthy delays and axed jobs. On the flipside, successful technology projects can transform an organisation by facilitating the timely achievement of its goals – as Clive outlined through the significant positive change at Woolworths Limited.”

The Handbook consolidates four years of expertise gained acting for both Vendors and Customers in the private and public sectors and offers:

  • A quick reference checklist: A user-friendly checklist to assist lawyers and project managers to better review and assess contractual arrangements associated with technology procurement.
  • Identification of critical success factors: Elements of the technology procurement process that are essential for better management of technology procurement.
  • Highlights of common pitfalls: Mistakes and failures which lead to the mismanagement and poor implementation of technology projects.
  • Provision of risk mitigation strategies: Clear guidance and strategies for mitigating the risks and potential losses associated with the implementation of technology projects.
