Posted in Uncategorized on May 22, 2011 by katephiz

The article list below doesn’t include the initial articles I wrote for the soft launch of Egyptological – our new free magazine about Ancient Egypt.   For now, follow that link but I will add the individual articles into the main list as well – the launch has been busy!

I got a mention as an Egyptophile on France24 for my work with the Egyptological Looting Database – in both the text and in the video (1’05” in)

Outsourcing Exit Strategy

Posted in Business, Uncategorized with tags , on August 19, 2009 by katephiz

I’ve posted an article on eZine Articles.  I may post more. 

Phizackerley, Kate “Outsourcing Exit Strategy – Planning Ahead For the Full Contract Life Cycle.” Outsourcing Exit Strategy – Planning Ahead For the Full Contract Life Cycle

In the article I look at the importance of considering how to avoid lock-in with outsourcing contracts.  This is a sample paragraph:

That is the key question which any organisation outsourcing a service needs to consider before signing a contract. If the answer is “only with great difficulty” then your supplier is holding a hand of aces whenever you need to negotiate a new contract or a revision in contractual terms. If you lack the resources or knowledge to take the contract back in house, and no other supplier has them “off the shelf”, then there is substantial lock-in. If a supplier knows that moving the contract away from them would cost you £2m, they can easily afford to inflate their charges to you by £1m knowing that you have little alternative but to pay.

(A reminder as well that my business blog is now Kate Phizackerley on Business.)

Heritage-Key is an exciting new venture for those interested in the Ancient World.  I was commissioned to write the keynote article on Tutankhamun for one of their first focus areas.

“For me, the abiding legacy of the 18th Dynasty, and particularly the Amarna renaissance, is the power of its art.  Despite suppression of references to Amarna by Horemheb, the last pharaoh of the dynasty, art of peerless quality has reached us in the treasures buried with a relatively minor pharaoh whose tomb largely escaped the robbers who raided the tombs of more illustrious pharaohs.  That pharaoh was, of course, Tutankhamun whose largely-intact tomb was found by Howard Carter in 1922.”

I’m gradually updating some of the Wikipedia articles for places round Lancaster – Caton, Quernmore, the Lune etc. They will give me decent material to link to on the site I’m working on as a tribute to my father
