Deborah Kops is the Founder and Managing Principal of Sourcing Change. Formerly a founding partner of one of the first global business processing outsourcing (BPO) units, the CMO of a leading offshore BPO, Managing Director of FleetBoston's (now Bank of America) Services Group, Managing Director of Global Sourcing Transformation for Deutsche Bank; and consulting partner at Price Waterhouse and Arthur Andersen, Deborah understands the implications of globalizing work, the movement of that work from one generation to the other, and the new capabilities required to succeed personally.
Harnessing what she’s learned through sometimes painful experience, Deborah now works with leading companies to manage globalization challenges through www.sourcingchange.com - the first resource solely dedicated to services change management. She is also a Research Fellow with award-winning analyst firm HFS Research, a member of the Editorial Board of industry-leading publication Outsource Magazine, and sits on the Global Advisory Board for SSON, for whom she writes a weekly blog.
