1:00 PM WORKSHOP C: Strategies for Increasing the Performance and Harmony with Offshore and Outsourced Partnerships

A strong partnership between clients and vendors is a key ingredient to high performance of the o shore activity. Yet, with all the noise around analytics, reporting, SLAs and commercial metrics, it often gets the least conscious e ort. O shoring relationships can start to sour and ultimately performance starts to slip. Onshore and o shore leadership is often not strong enough to redirect performance virtually and across cultures.

In their role as Head of Performance Management - Shared Services at Suncorp Group, the facilitator was able to develop an e ective framework for dealing with a variety of scenarios. During this master class the facilitator will share their framework and provide attendees with:

  • An understanding of how to conduct a diagnostic of their current arrangement
  • Tips on how to align metrics and desired outcomes to ensure that the correct behaviors are prioritized
  • Learning on the most effective leadership traits for improving the performance of partnerships across cultures
  • Strategies to ensuring on-going maintenance of the relationship
