It is that time of the year – we are getting closer to the annual Source 2 Pay Summit during which EBG | Network gather managers from across businesses, across countries and across industries. Our philosophy is simple yet effective – allow experiences managers to share ideas and exchange knowledge with peers and expert organizations in an informal yet highly structured setting. Allow moderators to discuss topics of relevance to them thus ensuring the relevancy to others.

The idea behind looking at end-to-end processes across functions and industries come from the understanding that as businesses grow more global and the ways we do business and execute business changes, the harder it becomes yet more opportunities are brought before us, to not only gain control but also ad value where value has possibly not been added before. This image and overview somewhat describe the need for a holistic approach to businesses and the ways we do business.
Do you agree that more of businesses are externalized, that organizations invest more of revenue with external suppliers, consultants and contingent workforce?
That a quite large extent of the contracts and agreements you have are not complied? And secondly are perhaps not adding value either due to its structure?
That both revenue, earnings and cash flow are hard to predict on an accurate level?
If you agree to any of the above EBG hope to see you in April!
