IAOP Training

"The Master Class provides a comprehensive tool set and broad framework to adapt to any initiative or business challenge. More important, the program gets you to think strategically about why, what and how to outsource from three varying perspectives. This alignment of views is paramount in creating successful collaborative partnerships." ~Lance Kwasniewski, COP, Belcan Corp

THE BUSINESS CASE

 

 

 WHY TRAINING?

 

 

When you have trained individuals on your team, they understand the challenges, pitfalls and how to avoid them in the first place.  If you have a trained team doing the work, it's going to run better.  It’s going to have fewer deviations, it's going to work from a set of standards and it's going to be more effective.

Understanding the process, from strategy to implementation to management and doing it right has many benefits and in the long run, it’s cost savings to not only providers but their customers as well.

GOVERNANCE WORKSHOP

 Download Brochure

Content for this one-day Governance Workshop is based on the Outsourcing Professional Body of Knowledge (OPBOK) and the Outsourcing Professional Standards developed by IAOP and the Outsourcing Standards Board. Whether your goal is to earn 15 points toward the Certified Outsourcing Professional (COP) designation or simply to gain comprehensive cutting-edge knowledge on all aspects of creating and sustaining successful relationships with your partners — this workshop is for you! Studies have found that more than half of all organizations spend two percent or less of an outsourcing contract’s cost on governance. However, more than 60 percent report losing 10 percent or more of the contract’s value because of poor governance between the customer and the provider. Given this, professionals involved in outsourcing clearly have an important role to play in helping their organizations plan, invest in, and execute a cohesive set of business practices for designing and implementing a strong governance program.
