Event Details

Service providers play a significant role in our business today. Understanding how we select those service providers can have a real impact on how successful those relationships are and all of the related consequences associated with that engagement.

Enterprise Design Thinking is a different approach to solving business problems. Taking a user-centric view to the initial need of why and what we need a service provide for, allows organizations the opportunity to think through all of the different touchpoints involved. This includes understanding all of the stakeholders, defining the actual needs statement and creating an action plan for selecting the service provider that is right for your organization.
