If You Build It (Right), They Will Come:
A Master Workshop on Contracting
This contracting workshop is specially designed for practitioner sourcing leaders and in-house counsel who engage in the review, creation, and/or execution of contracted services and terms. This session is designed to enhance master competencies in contracting and negotiating. Delivered in a highly interactive format (beginning with time for networking and concluding with a set of workshops designed to drive home the material), this workshop will include direct examples and experiences from some of the most experienced and innovative practitioners in the industry with extensive backgrounds in IT-enabled transformation, as well as customer and vendor outsourcing deal management. This workshop is back by popular demand and usually fills up fast.
Buying Technology in a Time of Disruption
At a time when technology is driving a business revolution, it’s no longer sufficient to have one mode of sourcing. Traditional sourcing is focused on cost reduction, quality, standardization, compliance, and risk containment, but there are times when sourcing must instead focus on disruption, transformation, capability enablement, differentiation, and speed, while never losing sight of the basics. Strategic IT sourcing now requires adaptive multi-modal approaches to maximize value to the business. In this session, Alsbridge will outline best practices to maximize business value across hardware, software, cloud, network, outsourcing, and integrated solutions sourcing.
