It is next to impossible to expect any supplier to deliver innovation on its own. The key to accessing innovation in outsourcing is working together with the provider, according to Alsbridge, Inc., a benchmarking, sourcing and transformation advisory firm. The firm will share insights on how sourcing clients can make innovation a reality for them through its eSeminar, Innovation in Outsourcing: A Myth or Reality? on September 12, 2013, 1-2 p.m. ET.
Paul Hardy, managing director at Alsbridge says, “In our work with the client-side users of outsourcing, the most common complaint we hear is that the supplier hasn’t brought any “innovation” to the party.” Suppliers are able to deliver, by and large, on what they committed to delivering i.e. green SLAs, a fair price, and an okay relationship, but the “WOW” factor is missing.
Paul will deliver an eSeminar sharing tips and tricks on how outsourcing clients can improve their access to innovation, together with answering the following vital questions:
- What do clients mean by outsourcing innovation?
- Is it reasonable to expect outsourcing innovation?
- What is the best way to ensure you get outsourcing innovation in the future?
In most deals, the client controls the end-to-end process along with strategy, and determining business priorities. Given this, it is hard for a supplier, on their own, to deliver significant change or innovation. So, how can a sourcing client improve its chances of accessing innovation through outsourcing? “The key is working together,” reiterates Hardy.
