A late addition to the events calendar! Kate Vitasek (author of the Vested series of books and Strategic Sourcing in the New Economy) will walk through the traditional RFx’s as well as some you may not have heard of, like Request for Solution or a Request for Partner. With Kate’s background in ‘Vested Outsourcing’ it comes as no surprise that the less well known RFx models are collaborative in nature.

The more activities are outsourced (or transferred if you prefer another word) to third parties, the more investment companies must make into a whole range of risk management activities. In this webinar, ISM and MetricStream will discuss risk management with a focus on remaining resilient, proactive, and efficient.
