Beyond Traditional Outsourcing
Solvay Brussels School – Economics & Management

Two interactive days to expand your horizon for additional outsourcing value

Collaborative partnerships have become more strategic as internal sourcing does not cover the full range of services needed to achieve business’ missions. Those collaborations, commonly referred to as outsourcing, include multi-sourcing, global business services, offshoring, nearshoring, robotic process automation (RPA), cloud-sourcing and many other variants. Outsourcing drivers have moved from cost cutting to agility and innovation, win-lose negotiations focused on price gave way to creative win-win partnerships and short best of breed arrangements gradually replace big deals with prime suppliers.

In this fast-moving environment, Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management together with the European Outsourcing Association, continue to update their yearly workshop. This edition includes presentation of recent practices and discussion of leading user experiences, with hands-on participation based on a recent Harvard case study.
