Many corporations are struggling with the implementation of global outsourcing and offshoring projects, where increasing complexity and the need for agile response to changing conditions demand an integrated, trust-based relationship between the parties. HP and Symantec have developed an innovative global service partnership that responds to their evolving business needs.   Executives from both organizations will discuss how this partnership was envisioned and implemented across the world.

Participants will learn firsthand how to deal with the myriad issues that can threaten to derail a global project of this kind and will get hands-on, detailed information about the main elements of this partnership, including the governance arrangements between provider and client.

Symantec is an active member of the Globalization Leadership Council at The Conference Board and this webcast is a typical example of the sort of topics on the agenda of the Council meetings. The Council meets three times a year in various cities that have significant offshoring activities, for example, Beijing, Manila, Buenos Aires, New Delhi, and Krakow.


This webcast will be of interest to executives who are responsible for directing and implementing their organization’s globalization and offshoring programs. Titles may include: Vice President, Global Sourcing, Director, Global Strategic Outsourcing, Vice President IT Sourcing and Vice President, Global Service Centers.
