Have advances in technology (e.g., cloud) made outsourcing obsolete? Are offshore labor cost advantages evaporating? Will low value-added, easily automated jobs disappear over the next decade? Has poor infrastructure killed growth?

Cliff Justice, a principal in KPMG's Innovation & Enterprise Solutions team, addresses the question: Is outsourcing dead?

Listeners will gain an understanding of:

  • Which traditional aspects of outsourcing are dying and which are being reborn
  • How executives can ensure outsourcing partners lend a strategic advantage to their business
  • How service provider capabilities must evolve to better help clients remain competitive
  • How third-party service delivery might look in five years
