Summary: Not all outsourcing relationships boil down to “us” and “them.” This session focuses on creating a business partnership of “we.” Dan Wilson and Brian Fox will discuss how the Volkswagen Group of America, through a formal RFP, selected, built a relationship with, and works on a daily basis with its business partner, CompuCom. This business partnership was the basis for turning a “helpless” IT support organization into an international award-winning team.

Brian and Dan will focus on five key steps and provide the customer and partner viewpoints on why these practices have worked so well for them

  1. Perform a current-state assessment and make sure you clearly understand future-state desires.
  2. Run a structured and meticulous RFP process.
  3. Be diligent about the agreement and governance structure.
  4. Establish grace periods and penalties.
  5. Perform continuous review, collaboration, and improvement.
