Getting Started With AI; Enterprise Open Innovation; and More — Outsourcing/Offshoring Challenges We Need to Meet for Future Success

September 4, 2017

We’re looking forward to our next TON program which will be September 14 at CBS.


Our theme will be The Challenges and Promises of New Ways of Working, Innovation and Business Models: Offshoring and Outsourcing.


Our program will provide a platform to look at several models and technologies that offer a lot of promise in outsourcing/sourcing/offshoring but bring a host of challenges for successful implementation.


Our program thus far includes:

9.00-9.30: Arrivals, networking and coffee
9.30-15.30: Formal program (includes coffee breaks and lunch)

  • Getting started with AI (artificial intelligence), Martin Börjesson, Partner,
    • Machine learning and artificial intelligence are barrelling down the highway of change even though we only just got the chance to introduce ourselves to robotic process automation. Organisations need to understand the ways in which this technology is developing and critically, how this technology might be utilised to achieve strategic business goals. Equally critical is how organisations should go about sourcing the necessary competencies both internally and externally to deliver successfully.
  • Open innovation in a B2B context, Wolfgang Sofka, Associate Professor, CBS
    • Wolfgang has done research into strategic partnering and enterprise level open innovation. It turns out that it’s not as easy to do successfully as many had thought. We’ll get a chance to hear about Wolfgang’s research and insight into how companies can increase the chances of success.
  • Open Forum Workshop 
    • We will be conducting a workshop on The Challenges and Promises of New Ways of Working, Innovation and Business Models in Offshoring and Outsourcing. This will give us a chance to share our own challenges and successes using new relationship models, internal organizational change and process improvement technologies.
There is ample time for networking and discussion throughout the day.
