This new environment not only calls for a new business model, but also for the strategic use of an effective and efficient contracting environment, focused on rapid world wide delivery against the organization's global strategies. This session will discuss how to create such an environment and will also deal with aspects of multi-supplier governance, a reality in multi-national outsourcing.
