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.

Join us on Tuesday, October 8th, as Valerie Egginton, Design Integration and Consulting Executive, Office of the CTO, discusses how using the Enterprise Design Thinking methodology and techniques to assist in evaluating service providers.  Valerie will be joined by Sai Poguluru, AVP Technology from TD Bank on an interactive panel during the session.
