The BSS Tour: Inspirations of KPI / SLA in Krakow

After the success of last year's The BSS Tour project, experts from the outsourcing industry and modern business services will visit several cities in Poland again to meet the growing expectations of expanding knowledge in this sector, as well as to redefine investment potential for the BSS sector.

The BSS Tour series is a continuation of The BSS Forum - an annual event organized by the Pro Progressio Foundation, during which specialists from the modern business services industry and representatives of the public sector share their knowledge and discuss the most important issues related to topics such as BPO, SSC, R&D, Logistics and many others. Big interest and stormy discussions about building the KPI/SLA model in operational centres during the second edition of The BSS Forum in Gdynia, inspired the organizers to take up the subject of key performance indicators on the occasion of the next conference.

The BSS Tour: Inspirations of KPI / SLA in Krakow is a strong accent opening the cycle of all-year business meetings. The purpose of the event is to discuss the types of performance indicators and to analyse the risks of implementing them. The conference will also include a discussion about Krakow, which is indicated as one of the most attractive cities in the Central and Eastern Europe for the BPO sector (according to Tholons Services Globalization Index 2017). With regard to the potential of the capital of Małopolska, the discussion will also be focused on other locations that Poland has to offer to foreign investors from the services sector.

The topics discussed during Krakow’s conference will include:

  • definition and differences between SLA, KPI, CSF, KRI and RI;

  • KPI relationship with the management of the operation centre;
  • practical applications of SLA;
  • the position of Krakow on the Polish map of BSS centres;
