Mature VMO - Vendor Portfolio Management and Governance

We will establish a 3-5 year strategic roadmap to mature your vendor governance over a vendor portfolio that fits your corporate profile. In our experience vendor portfolio management, including vendor rationalization is often an important prerequisite prior to maturing vendor governance. Our R3P ratio and knowledge of the Canadian ecosystem are leveraged throughout our frameworks to guide that rationalization and ongoing management effort. We will work with your vendor management office to create and prioritize actionable plans and ensure the sustainability of the results. We have a full range of services to execute the plans for measured multi-million dollar benefits

ITO, AMS and BPO Advisory Services

As part of a retained multi-year “vendor management roadmap” or as a focused effort, we provide advisory and assistance in strategy, planning, selection and negotiations of ITO, AMS and BPO outsourcing arrangements. We also provide transition planning and oversight to accelerate achievement of the benefits of the new operating model without undue risk.

Mature PMO – Project Management and Governance

As part of a retained multi-year “vendor management roadmap” or as a focused effort, we provide advisory and assistance to establish supply/demand management functions within client PMOs to feed outsourcers: IMACs, project funnels, PCRs and work request funnels. There is typically a need to improve the functions and overall governance to support outsourcing arrangements.
