The prestigious two-day event will host the who’s who of the sourcing industry and will discuss relevant topics that focus on managing the risks and benefits associated with every critical level of a sourcing venture.
“The Conference Board’s Strategic Outsourcing Conference is home to one of the heaviest concentrations of sourcing talent, expertise and thought leadership in the industry,” said Ben Trowbridge. “It’s a literal gathering of who’s who of sourcing professionals and will offer substantive information, trends and tools relevant for buyers and suppliers of sourcing services. This event will define pressing issues facing the sourcing industry as well as evaluate best practices that help overcome them.”
Trowbridge will speak during the General Session on Thursday, April 27, and will discuss 2006 Sourcing Trends and help answer how finance will play in the next wave of BPO. “F&A will continue to be a hot trend in 2006 and will serve as the foundation of larger strategies to improve performance and reduce costs within SG&A of complex organizations,” Trowbridge noted. “Over 40 percent of organizations will evaluate F&A outsourcing by end of 2006 with its heaviest concentration in Retail, CPG, Telecommunications and Government.”
Additional topics Trowbridge will discuss include:
