SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announced the Executive Immersion Program (EIP) and SIGnature event taking place in Boston, MA. This is the launch of the EIP in Boston and the return of the SIGnature Event, formerly known as the Regional Roundtable and Symposium program.
The Executive Immersion Program will take place on Wednesday, August 30th from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and will offer intensive workshops in contract negotiation and contract construction in today’s world of RPA and AI. Hosted and facilitated by Morgan Lewis, this event will allow attendees to gain expertise from thought leaders Ed Hansen and Doneld Shelkey, while simultaneously networking with local colleagues. These innovative industry leaders will focus on information technology–enabled transformation as well as customer and vendor outsourcing deal management and outline best practices to maximize business value across hardware, software, cloud, network, outsourcing, and integrated solutions sourcing. The day will also include a look at a case study, Is your BPO Robo Ready? Putting it all Together. This afternoon session will apply concepts learned in the morning workshop by examining RPA as part of a BPO solution. We will explore how shifting technology affects the BPO value proposition.
The Boston SIGnature event will be on Thursday, August 31st from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm and is focused on the issues related to talent management with topics ranging from workforce strategies to employee retention in a competitive environment.
