  • Spring 2014 Convocation

    The dictionary defines convocation as a large formal assembly which has been called together for a specific purpose; the origins of the word convocation come from the late 14th century, from the Latin word convocationem, from convocare “to call together,” from com- “together” plus vocare “to call,” from vox “voice.”

    While the origins of the word would make any etymologist smile with pleasure, at SolBridge, the word has a more auspicious meaning which is the beginning or the continuation of one’s academic journey.

  • Global Sourcing of Services: Bridging the Worldwide Economic Divide

     

    For two days, from June 28-29, scholars from around the world gathered at SolBridge for the 10th Annual International Smart Sourcing Conference.

    With the theme of “Global Sourcing of Services: Bridging the Worldwide Economic Divide” delegates to this conference represented a diverse group of scholars, vendors, clients, government officials, and media. During the two-day conference, the papers presented covered a wide range of areas related to smart sourcing, including, but not limited to health care and print media outsourcing to the financial risks involved with outsourcing and other related problems with outsourcing and smart sourcing.

    In his keynote address, “Global Sourcing Issues and Challenges that Lie Ahead” to the delegates and attendees, Dr. Varun Grover, Distinguished Professor of Information Systems at Clemson University, gave a brief overview of outsourcing—its origins (it started back in the 1960s focusing on internal development) and where it is at today. During his address and presentation, he examined the three worlds of outsourcing, the world of research, practice, and media and politics and how all three are interconnected. He also discussed business cases that epitomize some of the contemporary issues in outsourcing as well as some of the research being conducted in outsourcing and directions for mitigating these issues.

    “What we are really looking at is the co-creation of value,” Grover said. “Therefore, this conference is ahead of the game.”

    In addition to the papers presented at the conference, two panel discussions were held: Global Sourcing Opportunities and Challenges in Mexico and Global Sourcing Opportunities and Challenges in South Korea.

    The story of South Korea’s remarkable development and growth, rising up from the ashes of the Korean War, to become one of the world’s leading and vibrant economies today, can be applied to anyone who has a dream and pursues it, a former U.S. Congressman told faculty and students during the school’s 18th Platinum Series lecture.

    “The story of Korea is the story of each of you,” former Illinois Congressman, the Honorable Donald Manzullo said. “Anyone who has a dream can make something happen.”

    During his highly informative and insightful lecture which touched about his career in congress as well as his present position as the President and the CEO of the Korea Economic Institute of America. He offered insights on Korea’s economic development and the manufacturing and economic hub it has become today. One of the things he talked about was how fast Korea was able to recover and develop following the Korean War.

    “This all happened in two generations,” he said. “I want you to think how significant this is. How did they do it?”

    Using the story of Korea’s amazing story, Manzullo touched upon some ideas which resonated strongly for our students: to add value to the world and to recognize one’s talents.

    As a member of Congress, Manzullo pointed out that he looked at the peninsula a lot different than my colleagues.

    “I wanted to associate myself with a country that had a lot of things going on,” he said.

    When asked by one of students what his greatest accomplishment was serving in the Congress, Manzullo replied, it was serving the people

    “Helping the people means more to me than anything else,” he said.
