Vested is a revolutionary new approach to building business that takes business and collaborative relationships to the next level. This Vested business model for highly collaborative strategic relationships has proven to spark innovation, improve service and reduce costs. Vested relationships aren’t just the best way to achieve business success; they’re the only way to work together to create success for a future we can no longer envision, let alone prepare for, amidst the constant evolution in business today.
Kate Vitasek, Faculty, author, researcher, and innovator of the Vested® business model, has been helping organizations across the globe learn how to focus on desired outcomes and shared values to create an arrangement that is mutually beneficial for each. Rather than the “What’s in it for Me” mentality of traditional agreements, Vested’s “What’s in it for We” mindset invests both parties in the success of each other’s overall business. This combined success creates a bigger win for both parities than if just one party is the victor Success begets more success.
