Companies commonly use a multi-vendor strategy to address their globalization agenda. Typically, each vendor focuses solely on assigned projects, having little to no interaction with their competitive counterparts which exacerbates the industry’s most notorious challenges: repetitive rework, inefficiencies, and a lack of cohesion. This panel will focus on how one groundbreaking organization enabled a modern strategy that removes limitations through cross-vendor partnerships.
