SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announced the return of the Executive Immersion Program (EIP). SIG is thrilled to launch this innovative program in the city of Chicago, Illinois.
The SIG Executive Immersion Program will take place on Thursday, September 7th from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm and will offer intensive workshops in contract negotiation and contract construction in today’s world of RPA and AI.

The day will also include a look at a case study: Is your BPO Robo Ready? Putting it all Together. This afternoon session is designed to apply concepts learned in the morning workshop by examining RPA as part of a BPO solution. We will explore how shifting technology paradigms affect the BPO value proposition.
