Smart Sourcing Summit 2017

Outsourcing Malaysia leads the field in organizing the Smart Sourcing Summit; our flagship event on an annual basis. This power packed event is strived towards creating a platform that provides quality learning experience through leading specialists and presenters and runs alongside a patented networking platform.

This year's theme "Sustainable Growth in a VUCA Environment – Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity" is geared towards understanding how businesses and organisations have adopted this concept in many industries and sectors to guide leadership and strategic planning. The end of the Cold War ushered in a new era of change as political and economic barriers were torn down. Regimes were coming to an end and the world was starting to welcome a new order where economies once thought distant were inter-connecting and engaging in commercial relationships.

Experts have characterised the VUCA world as offering new, exciting, and challenging opportunities, mixed with turbulence in terms of client expectations, emerging competition, and greater complexity all across the acquisition and delivery of services. It takes a particular brand of leadership to provide stability in such an unpredictable business landscape and offer a structured vision to the workforce. Research indicates that today’s VUCA business environment requires leaders to possess more complex and adaptive thinking abilities.

VUCA is the current reality and it shall remain that way as global conditions continue to change and technology evolves. Strategies built on corporate sustainability present business the means to navigate through a period of turbulence without fear but renewed confidence in achieving growth and sustainable success.
