This is a question we have been asked many times over the years, and was one of the reasons we created such a content-rich product. Your third parties are an extension of your ability to deliver value, and a major factor in the speed at which you are able to do so. The methodologies and processes that are chosen to effect this delivery need to be tuned to work across company boundaries and commercial terms. It is essential to be able to analyze these, and apply ways to improve collaboration, communication and co-ordination, alongside the required governance.
VFQ is a way of bridging those gaps and creating a common language to describe the delivery model that works for all parties. Both sides of any relationship must take ownership of a delivery model for it to be successful. Emergn has helped companies source capable third party suppliers and put in place contract frameworks that support agile approaches.
