IT outsourcing today is no longer a slogan which, thanks to its vagueness, was the terror of the heads of IT departments. Today, many companies outsource these services without fear or even deliberately, which allows opening new doors to expanding market share or introducing a new product to the market. I will not refer to the world or even the European market. I will deal with experiences from the domestic market. The basic feature of our market is the growing gap between domestic companies and their foreign competitors operating in Poland.
The first decade of the 21st century showed that Poles have a new hobby - "Weekend visiting shopping malls". We have witnessed family trips for shopping, dining, and entertainment, which continue to this day. This period resulted in the appearance of over 400 shopping centers with a total area of approximately 9 million sq m. Large-format stores have accustomed us to making purchasing decisions under the influence of a wide range of products, promotions, radio and television advertisements, and subjective indications of the seller. Purchasing decisions were limited only by the time spent in the store and the store's range available at the moment.

This guide tries to answer the questions bothering many programmers with certain baggage of professional experience who want to continue their professional path towards managing both development projects and project teams. Repeatedly playing the role of the leader of the development team, I lacked information, advice, or suggestions on how to solve emerging problems regarding the team itself, budget, project scope, or knowledge. I came up with most of the answers on my own, so I will try to at least partially suggest what to pay attention to, to become an increasingly effective ABAP leading consultant and a programming team leader in SAP development and implementation projects.

Unfortunately, such documents are often stored in various locations, e.g.
Roll-out projects should be understood as an implementation system using the existing pattern. This pattern is usually a fully configured and productive environment. In the case of international roll-outs, which occur most often, the pattern is the corporation's branch operating in the country closest in specificity to the roll-out location, or the branch where the SAP system was implemented at the earliest, and the number of implemented functionalities is the largest (although this is not a rule).

The dynamical development of informatization and automation impacts also life and health care areas. It is reflected in constantly updated and comprehensive law regulations. These regulations result in further obligations and demands aiming at controlling activities influencing human health. The pharmaceutical industry must also abide by these regulations. Today there is more to IT technologies in pharmaceutics than controlling systems or computers.
Jeffrey Pfeffer, a professor at Harvard Business School, said that “Many companies spend large amounts of money on accumulating knowledge in various forms. Yet, these companies do not know how to change that knowledge into action. Knowing may not mean acting.”* The money is usually used to buy and to implement integrated economic systems. The success of such projects is determined—among others—by the level of commitment of people involved in them*.
For over a year now I’ve been reading everywhere about the crisis and prognosis as to what will and what will not sell. Various managers try to outdo one another in creating new economic forecasts and potential market development scenarios. One may try in vain, though, to look for reference to old mottos valid for business in times of up- and downturns in the economy.
For over 7 years most of the leading companies in Poland takes the challenge of implementing CRM system. Other companies are waiting to see the results of those implementations to be the next in line for it. The most frequent reasons for delaying the implementations are anxieties about the human factor.
