Chicago Executive Immersion Event
The [Executive Immersion] conversations were rich, the dialogues were high-level and the course was relevant, well-articulated and robust.

SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announced the return of the Executive Immersion Program (EIP). SIG is thrilled to launch this innovative program in the city of Chicago, Illinois.

The SIG Executive Immersion Program will take place on Thursday, September 7th from 8:30 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 gather expertise from thought leader providers Ed Hansen and Peter M. Watt-Morse, while simultaneously networking with other 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 SIG Executive Immersion Program in New York was very successful,” said Dawn Tiura, SIG President and CEO. “The conversations were rich, the dialogues were high-level and the course was relevant, well-articulated and robust.”

“We suggested this topic because there is a basic misunderstanding of how to use the contract,” said Ed Hansen, Partner at Morgan Lewis. “In fact, the contracting process is one of the biggest value leaks in sourcing. The questions asked and interaction throughout the day were at a very high level, and really made it clear to us how we can all benefit from workshops like this one.”

The day will also include a look at a case study: Is your BPO Robo Ready? Putting it all Together. This afternoon session is designed to apply concepts learned in the morning workshop by examining RPA as part of a BPO solution. We will explore how shifting technology paradigms affect the BPO value proposition.

The SIG Executive Immersion Program is designed for real-world situations at executive decision-making levels. Future workshops include topics on risk management, talent management, vendor management or other top-of-mind issues facing sourcing, outsourcing and procurement executives today.
