The IACCM Europe Conference 2020 - CANCELLED

We have been monitoring the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 and how it might affect all our upcoming IACCM conferences in 2020. Unfortunately, no one knows how long this crisis will last or whether it will return, as well as the impact on businesses worldwide.  We have sadly concluded that the only option for us is to cancel the IACCM Europe Conference scheduled for 20 – 22 October 2020 in Brighton, UK. This was a difficult and disappointing decision, but we are currently working on an exciting programme of virtual events and plan to return to our physical conferences next year.

Bringing you the best of IACCM Conferences Virtually

We are currently working hard to bring you some of the best of our conferences virtually, including Leaders of the Virtual Future, BIG Debates, Problem Solving Labs and IACCM's answer to TED Talks with a series of keynote speakers that will inspire you, lift you and help you think differently in the current crisis. Along with a series of new Optimism Cafes we plan to showcase real life case studies from our members in this time of uncertainty, sharing  their success stories, offering tips on how they are coping and demonstrating some of the unique ways in which they are making a real difference to others in their communities.

Covid-19 Crisis Management Tool Kit

As we struggle with the uncertainties created by this global pandemic, maintaining effective market outreach is critical to us all. IACCM, with its global online network of almost 70,000 members, has ramped up its activities, launching up to the minute research and delivering daily webinars, workshops and briefings that enable you to cope with the current crisis. Take a look at our Crisis Management Tool Kit

2020 - Time for a connected vision. Purpose and Relationships in an era of Servitization

In the last 20 years, the global economy has changed dramatically. E-commerce, social media, the sharing economy, a networked world, emerging technologies, all transforming the way that we live and work.

The old adage of “change has never been so fast and will never be so slow again” doesn’t seem to be going out of fashion any time soon. Whilst it is true that many of us fear change, it is equally true that we are unable to stop it, so surely, as we enter 2020, the only answer is to optimistically embrace change together with all of the opportunity and potential that it offers to us.

 

Connectivity remains a major challenge for organisations. Fragmented processes and systems, uncertain market conditions, multiple stakeholders with variable interests mean decision making, and implementation continue to become more complicated and contentious. Compounding this, organisations are under increasing pressure to better define their sense of purpose. A focus on profits and providing dividends to shareholders is no longer enough. What about their broader social role? And equally, what about the relationships they must form and manage, the extent of loyalty and integrity they offer, the depth of visibility and transparency, the fairness of their dealings both internally and externally?

 

The themes of purpose, relationships, and servitization potentially offer solutions to these complex problems and provide the opportunity for the contract and commercial community to assume a position of leadership in the execution of change and innovation.

 

Purpose matters not only at an overall strategic level but also as the potential unifying force within major programs, projects or business offerings. Improved analysis and then management of relationships is increasingly an area that links directly to contract performance. And servitization appears an unstoppable trend that sees us moving away from a world of ownership to one of availability and outcomes.

 

Contract and Commercial Management stands as the enabler and the integrator uniquely positioned to break down the barriers and allay conflicting interests. In the 2020s, we can increasingly assume a role in which we inform and shape corporate strategies.

 

IACCM 2020 will explore these fundamental trends and how they depend on Contract and Commercial Management for their development and successful implementation. The opportunities for us to intervene, to engage, and to anticipate are amazing. Join us, be at the heart of these revolutionary changes and be inspired.
