EBG find this especially interesting as so much effort is put into ensuring a One Company harmonization with common understandings of what an organization is, do and offer, what missions and visions should be guiding stars and to what extent employees tend to embrace all of the above in their output.
When an organization choose to outsource it is inevitable that there is a we-them created – or at least it used to be. Today more and more outsource but choose to keep the outsourced part in-house. Even core functions are outcourced but seemingly still a part of the organization.It highlights interesting aspects of what “We” and “One” and even “Company” means.

How do you choose what do outsource? And how do you measure the effect you are looking for?
Ulrika will discuss;
- Which areas within procurement are most commonly outsourced – what is the group’s experience?
- Enabling more focused strategic procurement resources vs. losing control – what are the pros and cons?
- Internal buy-in and gain – share end user and finance experiences and feedback!
