Self-Assessments

We’ve decided to share three of our popular benchmarking and assessment tools as open source “self-assessments.” This means these resources are available to you for free – and you can share this link with as many people as you think will benefit from their own self-assessments.

The specific results of your survey are only revealed to yourself. When you participate in this self-assessment, the results are anonymously collected and pooled with others; results to help us track the overall state of outsourcing. We will be using the data to produce a white paper and other research articles that will be shared as part of our open source research library.
