Join our experts for an interactive event where we'll share insights into real-world 'Request For' (RFx) examples. This includes some of the more effective tools, techniques, and activities that will set you up to engage and compare responses, with confidence.
About the event
In today's fast-evolving business landscape, the power of digital transformation through cloud-based solutions is undeniable. The demand for visionary partners who can implement cutting-edge technology and guide you on your transformation journey has never been higher.
How can you craft the perfect market engagement position that not only attracts the right partners but also ensures clarity and relevance; and enables you to confidently compare responses?
This is where great business analysis steps in, offering a unique 'ON,' not 'IN,' business perspective, to support the development of, or independently review, market engagement documents. Good business analysts understand the diverse range of perspectives needed for success and ensure that audience needs are at the forefront while creating documents that encourage active participation.
Implementing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions may appear 'out of the box,' but it's far from straightforward. The real challenge begins long before market engagement. It involves understanding your organisation's unique context, knowing that SaaS introduction necessitates business transformation. This is where the experts come in, armed with valuable lessons learned and an arsenal of tools and techniques to ensure business confidence and supplier/vendor clarity in your market engagement.
We'll focus on three key themes during the event:
1. Clarifying your business context:
Foundational work to ensure business led from the beginning
Just enough current state - within the context of future
2. Assumptions matter:
United and confident stakeholders - on the same page
Clarity between goals, objectives, and outcomes
3. Partnering - roles and responsibilities:
Clear boundaries - upfront
Join us and our team of experts to gain invaluable insights that will set you on the path to success.
