Contracts with teeth - the future of outsourcing

Ed has recently co-authored the thought leadership report "Delivering contracts with teeth" - the future of outsourcing. This report was produced from the results of a prior survey, conducted with the National Outsourcing Association, looking at which contractual provisions in outsourcing agreements are actually being used by customers at the coalface, to ensure that their suppliers perform.
