It’s one of the biggest words in the outsourcing dictionary – but what does “innovation” really mean, and how can we achieve it? This issue’s cover story takes on the “I” world in all its multifaceted splendour: with input from an array of some of the sharpest minds in outsourcing we explore what buyers and suppliers really mean by innovation, and how it can be delivered. Can outsourcing really lead to innovation – or, conversely, is innovation even possible anymore without partnering with a provider? And don’t miss sourcing guru Mark Lewis’ take on innovation from a legal perspective in our Legal View.

Plus don't miss our explorations of the role of analytics, Calum Byers’ take on R&D; our exclusive interview with Accenture Operations’ CTO Liv Sandbaek nor Waseem Hussein’s insightful piece on overcoming cultural differences. If vendor relationship management is your bag check out Jeanette Hibbert’s commentary on the value of reviews or maybe multisourcing is more your cup of tea in which case you'll hopefully enjoy Derek Parlour's piece.

Throw in our regular exclusive content from our research partners at NelsonHall (this issue: LPO), the latest from the Deal Doctor (Paul Morrison of Alsbridge) and the return of our Head-to-Head series featuring Whitelane's Jef Loos & Source's Eleanor Winn and you've got a cracking issue.

Enjoy! & Please +1 and share of course...
