Podcast: Sourcing for Innovation


Many technology and sourcing deals are signed promising innovation, change and transformation. After all, there is a real need for these deals to drive more value from data through AI, analytics and multi-cloud, automate manual processes, and leverage best-of-breed tools and platforms.

But too often, they don’t deliver innovation beyond the business-as-usual. In episode 18 of The Roadmap, our experts Vik Khurana and Anneke Pol explain how procurement processes and contractual frameworks can be enhanced to incentivise innovation. In particular, how better governance structures, a creative approach to IP and data constructs, and thinking outside the box on pricing, risk, and remedies can help achieve genuine innovation in tech projects and services.

Our Digital Transformation Project Masterclass Series is coming-up in early 2024. The four, in person, sessions will be held monthly between January and April and be focused on buy-side digital transformation, IT, outsourcing and commercial projects.
