What is CORE?

CORE, established in 2005 as a non-profit membership organization, represents buyers, providers and advisors of complex service provider relationships, such as outsourcing. Membership is held by corporate entities.

Any employee of a member organization is entitled to participate in all CORE events at no charge (except education sessions where member employees are granted a significant discount).

Today we help member companies manage risks and optimize the value of their complex service provider relationships. Whether it’s a simple domestic sourcing arrangement or a complicated global outsourcing deal, CORE helps by delivering thought leadership through discussion forums and  executive education.

CORE’s Accredited Outsourcing Practitioner™ (AOP) designation recognizes individuals who have attained a requisite level of both practical experience and classroom education to understand and apply innovative management approaches for productivity and competitive enhancement.

An annual membership in CORE represents a minimal investment relative to the size of the average outsourcing contract and substantially increases the returns on relationships. 

Membership includes unlimited access to webinars, forums and the annual conference at no additional cost and a 20% discount or more on Execution Education courses for all the employees of your organization.  Members have exclusive access to the Research Centre that includes past presentations, white papers, and research reports which are a key reference for our members.
