It is becoming increasingly difficult for organisations to achieve strategic advantage through Information Technology outsourcing. Expectations of benefits and the significance or "business value" placed on them – remain very high. However, research conducted by Gartner shows that as much as 50% of Information Technology Outsourcing agreements fail to achieve a satisfactory outcome. This paper reviews current industry practices in the domain, particularly around negotiating and governing Information Technology Outsourced arrangements. It explores some of the myths and problems that exist and their impact on the eventual success of the outsourcing arrangement. Conference held in Melbourne on 29th November to 1st December 2006
