Where we will attempting to divert them from shameless sales pitches to discuss the following topics:

  • What is working for enterprise services clients – where (and why) are they struggling?
  • How are services buyers and providers defining "success" today - and does this need to change?
  • What impact is a “factory mentality” having on outsourcing? Is there anything we can do to change this, or are we already in a race to the bottom?
  • How can (and should) advisors help the industry - and what differentiates today's advisory firms in the market?
  • How has cloud computing impacted the enterprise – is it everything we thought it was going to be?
  • What measures can both enterprise clients and service providers take to improve sourcing relationships and achieve more business value?
  • What are everyone’s recommendations on next steps for the future of the services and sourcing industry?
