Outsource Magazine Issue 26 - (Page 28)

Fine – but what does it all mean? OK, so you’ve read our contributors’ predictions – but what are their implications for outsourcing? To add practical application to theory, Outsource convened a gathering of three outsourcing professionals representing the buyer, vendor and advisory communities to get their take on what our predictions signify for the space. Our participants (chaired by BPOpronet’s Howard Spode) looked at the implications for their own areas of business, and for the other stakeholder groups – throwing further light on some of the issues brought up in the 2012 Preview article as well as injecting some of their own prognostications into the mix.
