Join us for a day of deep-dive learning and workshops!
If You Build It (Right), They Will Come: A Master Workshop on Contracting
Back by popular demand, this session is designed to enhance master competencies in contracting and negotiating. It will include direct examples from experienced and innovative industry practitioners who have backgrounds in information technology–enabled transformation as well as customer and vendor outsourcing deal management. The 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.
Buying Technology in a Time of Disruption
At a time when technology is driving 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 be focused on disruption, transformation, capability enablement, differentiation, and speed while never losing sight of the basics. In this session, we will outline best practices to maximize business value across hardware, software, cloud, network, outsourcing, and integrated solutions sourcing.
