Many outsourcing deals are fundamentally flawed and prevent transformational results. The University of Tennessee and the United States Air Force partnered to research leading companies that challenge conventional approaches to outsourcing. Author, educator and business consultant Kate Vitasek is the founder and lead researcher in the concept of a fresh approach to outsourcing whereby companies and their outsourcing suppliers collaboratively develop performance-based solutions and thus become vested in each other's success. Vitasek has codified the game-changing rules in her book Vested Outsourcing: Five Rules that Will Transform Outsourcing. Kate will share her research and insights, and participants will learn how apply these rules to rethink their outsourcing relationships and take them to a higher level with improved results.
