Our focus for this Member Meetings will follow the IACCM theme for 2018:

Collaborating Across Boundaries

Trading relationships often involve multiple parties whose support and alignment is critical to success. Achieving that support and alignment depends on empathy - an understanding and appreciation of their point of view (whether or not we agree with it).

And in the rapidly changing world of digitization, automation, and diversity, relationships are being forced into new approaches to collaborating across boundaries. 

For several years, IACCM research has pointed to the scale of value erosion that comes from weaknesses in the way we form and manage contracts. While a few organizations have picked up on this and driven significant improvements, most have not.

Suddenly, the reticence is disappearing; there is a real belief that a focus on 'relationship resource planning' can yield the next big wave of savings - and that the IACCM community, with its 'collaboration across boundaries', will be at the heart of the movement that drives these benefits.

In this member meeting, we will explore the way commercial teams are collaborating, and we want you to bring your stories, examples, insights and question to share with others.

Jim Bergman, IACCM VP Strategy and Advisory Services is in Australia for the week undertaking assignments with some of our corporate members and will join us for this Member Meeting.  Jim will be sharing recent examples of collaboration IACCM has been engaged with globally, such as the Jurisdictional Benchmark work IACCM has been doing with governments in Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and Australia.

Following the official agenda, we invite you to participate in networking with Jim, Board Members, and each other.
