} catch(err) {}I am scheduled to speak at the 94th ISM conference on Monday, May 4 and the brief of the talk entitled ” You have a  Great Global Outsourcing Contract- Now What? – Managing Transition Issues in Global Outsourcing” posted on the Institute for Supply Management website  is here.

As markets slow down cost cutting through outsourcing continues to be a priority in organizations. Both outsourcers and providers need to do a better job in managing outsourcing transitions so that innovation is accelerated and everyone emerges stronger from the recession.

I am also planning to add some ideas to my presentation about dealing with existing contracts so that innovation is “retrofitted” to existing relationships. Crucial for these tough times.
