Upcoming KPO/BPO learning opportunities in Florida and New York

I am really glad to see the surge of recent interest on knowledge process outsourcing and the shared service domain. End of March you have the Orlando Florida event where you have the eminent strategy guru Ram Charan  leading the proceedings.  On a more applied and "what I can I do with this KPO thing specifically"  note is the nice event at New York on April 29 and 30 .

The KPO summit is chaired by the noted Duke University Professor Arie Y. Lewin . Talks include  financial sector KPO by Andy Eftathiou ; types of KPO including business,investment and legal research by Suresh Yannamani ;the India advantage by Ron Somers, and a KPO best practices panel discussion  with Vasant Bennett , Ken Cutshaw EVP and General Counsel of Church’s Chicken and Ranjit  Dua of  Dua Associates.

On April 30th we have Julio Ramirez  on finance and accounting KPO, Marcia Mcleod of Williams Energy on contracting, Lawrence A. Schultis  on risk management in contracting, Jack Diggle    of Prince OMC   on managing human resources in KPO,  A group  from CPA Global  ( Bhaskar Bagchi, Inder Duggal and Susan Hanstad) with an operational KPO  case study; comparing India,Ghana,Philipines and Eastern Europe for KPO with Harry van Geijn of Fortis Insurance International; a case study of managing the "stay behind" workforce by Steve Hosle of AOL followed by Fauzia Zaman Malik  of Accenture  on captive vs build operate and transfer (BOT) models and finally  Frank Cocuzza of Penske (check out this story here) on relationship governance for KPO. Those new to BPO and KPO might like to attend the pre-conference sessions by  David Perla of Pangea3 LLC to prep for the main event.

KPO has indeed  come a long way from my various efforts since  2005 on "Global Outsourcing of Knowledge Based Services"!

  1. Great news for newyork and Florida.The BPOs in India face an enormous challenge in reducing attrition rate and this being a nascent industry needs to draw parallels.Before we proceed its important to understand the underlying reasons for high
    attrition rates, which are pretty steep and are around 40-50%. Currently it is about 35% in non-voice and 45% in voice call centers. About 80% of them look for better careers within the same industry.
