If there’s one thing we learned at OWS19 this past February, it’s that governance in the digital era must be designed to ensure effective and efficient controls while supporting agile development and identifying opportunities. It has become a cliché to say that we live in a data driven world. Data has become the beating heart of enterprises from Nike to Novartis, as they transform their business and its functions impacting everything from manufacturing to marketing. While the customer, is still flesh and bone, everything else is, or will be, digital.
While the digital world ushers in a new era of problem-solving as well as seemingly unlimited opportunity; it also raises new risks, from cyber-security threats through to compliance failures and organizational silos, and with this, the challenge of governing the design and use of technology and third-party partners becomes more acute.
Are you ready to tackle this head-on? Join us in Chicago on November 13 for a full day of in-depth sessions and networking, where you will:

As companies expand their operations and suppliers relationships globally, an associated risk rises too. This risk can best be described as disruptions of operations and services. We are seeing disruptions rise in frequency and severity. Learn how leading governance organizations are managing and mitigating risks using risk data and intelligence. Leading companies are not just exercising good governance on suppliers but also on cyber and geographic related risks.

Advanced technologies are increasingly integral to global shared services organizations and are changing the
relationship with outsourcing partners. These digital trends have raised the bar on what one requires from outsourcing partners, including: scopes of services, real time process intelligence, and evolving value propositions. Locking-in higher productivity and savings from automation, adding a suite of AI capabilities that drive better performance, or getting access to hard-to recruit talent are all attainable objectives that require a new type of agile outsourcing arrangement. Gone are the days of long-term, cumbersome contracts that rewarded the vendors for labor arbitrage benefits and maintaining the status quo. In today’s agile world, capturing the full potential from your strategic vendor relationships will require enterprises to evolve how
they invest in new capabilities, manage functions, and contract/govern outsourcing partners. Join us as we share practical experiences on what it takes to establish, manage and sustain ‘agile’ outsourcing relationships with effective and empowered governance to rapidly make decisions and achieve these results.
Speakers: James Lee, Governance, Risk, & Compliance Global Lead, Avasant and Rawle Howard, AVP & Chief Procurement Officer, Howard University
Whether they formally realize it, nearly every organization regardless of industry is in the midst of digital transformation which simply translated means disruption. The pace of digital transformation, its impact on the organization's vendor ecosystems and operating models, need for resources with the right skills and competencies, and the requirement for better analytics implores transformation to digital governance. Governance must move from tactical command and control functions to strategic enablers that unlock insights and greater value from their vendor relationships to achieve expected business outcomes. Join in to hear about how some organizations are turning to platform-based services to successfully address these challenges.
