Many nontraditional purchasing deals are often structured with fundamental flaws in the business model that prevents transformational results through outsourcing. The University of Tennessee has been researching leading companies that are challenging conventional outsourcing, proving that outsourcing is not a dirty word - but rather a way to help organizations transform their business with highly strategic and Vested supplier relationships.

Author, educator and business consultant Kate Vitasek will share the game changing rules for outsourcing from her research with the University of Tennessee - Center for Executive Education. Organizations will leave with insights, which include: What is Vested Outsourcing - and why outsourcing does not have to be a dirty word; and the five rules of Vested Outsourcing that will transform how companies outsource.
