Outsourcing Conference in Poland…A Smashing Success

I had a great time in Warsaw, Poland. During my time in Warsaw, I launched the Polish Edition of The Outsourcing Handbook (Kogan Page, 2006). The Polish version, Outsourcing: Podręcznik sprawdzonych praktyk, is published by Wydawnictwo MT Biznes.

I enjoyed meeting with executives from leading Polish organizations. We had excellent discussions and debates on a wide assortment of topics from the role of outsourcing in emerging economies, to how the financial crisis will impact outsourcing strategies of vendors and clients, and the future of outsourcing for competitive strategies.

Here are some press articles that covered the conference:

Warsaw...The Final Set of Photos...

Thank You... and Pictures from Warsaw on a Nice Winter Day

I had a fantastic time in Warsaw today. Thanks to Harvard Business Review Polska (especially Antoni Bielewicz, Patrycja Iwinska-Szpuda, Marek Wochna), IBM (Robert Jursza), Instytut Outsourcing, and the numerous other sponsors for organizing an exciting day of sightseeing around Warsaw. Thanks to all 120+ executives from leading Polish companies (e.g. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, ADP, McKinsey, Alcatel-Lucent, among others) who attended the book launch event yesterday. It will take me a few days to write back to all of you, but I promise to spend time to thank each of you individually…See below for some pictures from Warsaw...
