Far too many companies have developed outsourcing agreements that were created for a bygone century. Or worse, they are buying strategic services using an overly simplified commodity approach.
Today’s strategic outsourcing deals require deep collaborative relationships that accelerate the pace of innovation and competitive advantage amidst a new era of continual change and transformational shifts. In The Vested Outsourcing Manual, Kate Vitasek and her co-authors have taken the Five Rules of Vested Outsourcing and developed the roadmap to creating a Vested Agreement through which each party has a vested interest in mutually-defined and desired outcomes. These flexible—Vested—agreements allow the creation of value systems with the ability to transform every industry and society.
Today over 50 companies are using the Vested flexible framework to lay the foundational structure to create successful business partnerships purposefully architected. The result? Long term business partners that foster an anticipatory lens, share evolving expertise, navigate the dynamic nature of business and drive the required behavior for both parties to drive innovation and mitigate risk.
If you are wondering where to begin search no further. The Vested Outsourcing Manual is the ideal companion to the University of Tennessee innovative online Creating a Vested Agreement online course. Combined, they are your roadmap for crafting a strategic win-win business relationship purpose-built to create value for the partners involved.
