Experiencing a carve-out is a lot like your parents letting you know it’s time to move out. The goal of moving out — whether from your parents’ house or from your parent company’s shelter — is to achieve long-term prosperity with limited short-term pain and failures. No matter what the size or complexity of a carve-out, the list of information technology (IT)-related activities that need to be completed quickly is long and urgent.

  • Choose your roommates carefully – Design and staff for the future
