Agenda

September 14-15, 2007

We invite you to participate in the third annual Foley CIO ThinkTank Series. This year’s program is titled Vendor Management: Realizing on the Promise of Value Delivery. A select group of fellow chief information officers and technology executives will join you alongside Foley Information Technology & Outsourcing attorneys and consultants from EquaTerra in this unique, cross-disciplinary business intelligence exchange.

Our discussion will address:

  • Creating a vendor relationship that can be managed effectively
  • Approaches to pay-for-performance contracting
  • Articulating business objectives and evaluating performance based on achieving those objectives
  • Governance best practices and resource requirements
  • Measuring value delivery

Materials we distribute in advance of the weekend will serve as a platform for our discussions. Comments and feedback resulting from our discussions will be incorporated into a post-ThinkTank edition of the materials that will be sent to you and the other attendees as a reference tool on this subject.

In addition, to ensure you enjoy the sites, culture, and local cuisine, we have arranged for a number of first-rate events for your pleasure throughout your stay.
