GOV21: IMPROVING GOVERNANCE TO CULTIVATE AND STRENGTHEN PRODUCTIVITY


During the pandemic, the productivity gap between the best and the rest has grown from 40% to nearly 50%, according to recent research from Bain & Company. Effective virtual strategy development and deployment, planning, and operational execution have given firms that do it well even more of an advantage over their competitors. The pandemic made the best better and the rest worse.

Customer organizations have in many cases worked effectively with suppliers virtually for years due to suppliers being in remote low-cost locations. However, consumers of supplier services have often had a much less structured relationship with the governance team, relying on casual conversations, face-to-face meetings, etc. The relationships that can keep everyone aligned and informed without conducting endless virtual meetings are the most productive.

Studies show collaboration really does move the needle for companies that do it well -demonstrating higher growth, lower operating costs, and greater profitability.

PROGRAM

Day One - October 27th

12:15 PM - 1:00 PM
 

SOURCING IS TRANSFORMING SO SUPPLY CHAIN GOVERNANCE NEEDS TO TRANSFORM, TOO: THERE IS NO PLAN B

            

 

Bill Metz, COP, Chair, IAOP’s Collaborative Supplier Governance CoE, member of IAOP’s Strategic Advisory Board and IAOP’s Leadership Hall of Fame
Jim Lee, Vice President and Global Leader, Governance, Risk &Compliance Practice, Avasant
John Bree, Chief Evangelist & Chief Risk Officer, Supply Wisdom
Lawrence Kane, COP-GOV, Senior Leader, Strategic Sourcing Functional Excellence, Boeing

Traditional Supply Chain governance practices do not address the challenges presented by today’s outsourcing engagements and multi-supplier ecosystems. Buyers and suppliers alike must, in a spirit of genuine partnership, collaboratively transform their supplier governance practices and embrace the trend to continuous, proactive governance and broad-spectrum risk intelligence to maximize value, drive innovation, and manage the multi-vector and cascading compliance risks of their outsourcing relationships such as the current increased government focus on ESG throughout the supply chain.

In this action-packed panel discussion, hear from four of the industry's leading experts on why they say there is no "Plan B," and how critical it is that supplier chain governance must adapt as sourcing transforms. 

Day Two - October 28th

12:15 PM - 1:00 PM
 

FUTURE OF VENDOR GOVERNANCE: ENABLING SUSTAINABLE OUTCOMES IN COMPLEX SOURCING DEALS

            

 

Carlos Hernandez, Partner, Global Lead Business & Digital Transformation, Avasant
Jim Lee, Vice President and Global Leader, Governance, Risk &Compliance Practice, Avasant

Outsourcing deals today are getting larger, more strategic, and more complex with converged IT, digital, and business process services.  Contract terms are getting longer and multi-dimensional, reaching hundreds of millions of dollars. As a result, clients are paying careful attention to deal structuring and contract negotiation, ensuring they get the best deal. However, once the contract is in place and the transition is complete, many of them spend little time or attention ensuring that the service provider delivers to the terms of the agreement, in effect leaving enormous value on the table, unrealized. 

In this interactive panel discussion, Avasant Partner Carlos Hernandez and Vice President Jim Lee will present Avasant’s vision for vendor management along with real-world experiences from Valerie Lape Handy, Director, IT Partner Management, CDPHP, touching on the current challenges to a sustainable sourcing partnership:

  • Alternatives to traditional approaches to vendor governance
  • How Vendor Management as a Service (VMaaS) ensures realization of business value from large outsourcing relationships
  • Justifying the investment to establish a VMaaS program to achieve ROI
  • Real-world examples of VMaaS program success
Day One - October 27th

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM

Come join us for a riveting discussion and make your voice heard as well!

USING DATA TO STRENGTHEN THE OUTSOURCING RELATIONSHIP

Successful outsourcing relationships are based on delivering results that align with a customer’s strategic goals. Services need to provide consistent, sustainable value. In this session, we will explore how data and analytics to advance the overall outsourcing relationship, promote collaboration, and create opportunities to partner on innovation initiatives.
 
We’ll look at a simple process that outsourcing professionals can use to demonstrate themselves as trusted advisors and reliable partners by using data and analytics. Sharing the right information at the right time will build and inspire confidence in work now routinely performed globally, and due to the pandemic, often remotely.
