Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230112684, Hardcover)

Far too many companies have developed outsourcing agreements that were created for a bygone century.  Or worse, they are buying strategic services using an overly simplified commodity approach.  

Today’s companies must build deep collaborative relationships with their suppliers that can accelerate the pace of innovation and competitive advantage amidst a new era of continual change and transformational shifts.  This requires adopting a new methodology that has the inherent framework to design new levels of collaboration to drive business value.

This new methodology is Vested Outsourcing. The Vested Outsourcing Manual is the companion guide to the ground-breaking book, Vested Outsourcing: Five Rules That Will Transform Outsourcing.  The break-out book introduced the research study conducted by The University of Tennessee and challenged the conventional approach to how companies outsource.

In The Vested Outsourcing Manual, Kate Vitasek and her co-authors have taken the Five Rules of Vested Outsourcing and developed the roadmap to creating a Vested Agreement through which each party has a vested interest in mutually-defined and desired outcomes.

Vested Outsourcing methodology is built on a flexible framework that lays the foundational structure for the parties to come together and create a shared vision, foster an anticipatory lens, share evolving expertise, manage change and drive the required behavior for both parties to drive innovation and mitigate risk. These flexible—vested—agreements will allow the creation of value systems that have the ability to transform every industry and society.

Shared vision, desired outcomes, transparency, trust, and win-win are not simply buzz words—they are the principals and values of Vested Outsourcing, being embraced by innovative giants like Microsoft, Intel, and P&G.

Now companies and their suppliers have the manual to create a business model for a new century of constant change.
