IAOP Chapter: Philadelphia

Meeting held on May 11, 2017
 
The IAOP Philadelphia Chapter, co-chaired by Merck, Nexient, WGroup and Canon Business Process Services held a meeting on May 11, 2017 on the topic of:  Regulatory Changes Impacting Sourcing and Automation – What could it mean for your business?
 
There is currently a tremendous amount of uncertainty amongst sourcing professionals as the outsourcing world as we know it is being challenged. Possible regulatory changes have the potential to significantly impact how organizations operate, and may completely change the future state of outsourcing. During this meeting we explored important questions like:
 
  •  What if there is a tariff placed on outsourced or offshore  resources?
  •  What could changes in H-1B visas mean for a global technology  workforce?
  •  How could Bill Gates’ “Robot Tax” on automation impact process  improvement  initiatives?  
  •  And more…
 
To provide clarity around these topics, we were joined by Tony Ioele, Managing Principal from WGroup. Tony is a renowned advisor to IT and sourcing leaders with over 25 years of diverse industry experience. Tony reviewed the potential paths of sourcing regulation, detail the top potential risks, and outline strategies that could be employed to respond.
