We’ll discuss the following questions, plus your own challenges:

  • What is going on with attrition and retention at leading service providers?

  • Which five actions can enterprises take to achieve better cost optimization in a changing market?
  • Should we consider new locations onshore, nearshore, or offshore?

Questions to consider during this roundtable discussion include:

  • How can sourcing articulate the value of portfolio rationalization with stakeholders?
  • Which frameworks work best for analyzing and guiding decisions on IT categories?
  • When should we let go of the traditional sourcing lever of “volume consolidation” and look for rational ways to expand the portfolio?
You will learn:
  • How to define and promote the benefits and drawbacks of portfolio rationalization
  • How a rationalized supplier portfolio can be impacted by changing market trends
  • How to build a framework to guide stakeholders in evaluating IT tail spend 
  • Strategies to turn legal from the “deal preventor” to the “business enabler”
