And the Outsourcing Oscar Goes To...

Where Do Outsourcing Leaders Find Innovations and "Best Practices" in Outsourcing?
The Oscars of Outsourcing, of course.

For more than 15 years, around 60-100 outsourcing buyers and suppliers have participated in the Outsourcing Center's Outsourcing Excellence Awards. They don't have categories like best picture or supporting actress. No, an independent panel of experts evaluates joint submissions from leaders who want to measure themselves against the best. The categories include best partnership, best transition, long-term momentum, best communication, best applications outsourcing, most flexible, and best impact.

Oh sure, some of those iconic outsourcing providers are walking down the red, er, blue carpet with their customer partner in tow, sporting the latest designer dresses, shades, and bling. You get the picture. Just like Hollywood, only it's Dallas.

This year's winners of the 2010 Outsourcing Excellence Award for Best Impact were Grupo Posadas and Oracle On Demand, who will present a panel discussion on outsourcing excellence at Oracle OpenWorld. Joining the panel are Three Rivers Pharmaceuticals Cabot Microelectronics, Taconic, and North Shore Long Island Jewish Hospital System, all appearing in their own outsourcing success stories that have also been "blockbusters."

After these leading outsourcing experts provide a brief background of their successful outsourcing engagements, the discussion will turn to questions from the audience in a highly interactive, insightful examination of what it takes to achieve outsourcing success. What business circumstances compelled them to evaluate outsourcing? What benefits and transformation were they trying to achieve? Did they attain the business results they were looking for? How would they advise others?
