advisoryValueOptim offers advisory services to create immediate business impact for its clients. Our Advisory services are targeted towards defined business objectives and typically pay much more than the cost of services. We have devised proven sourcing frameworks which can be adapted to solve business problems. Our solution team comprises of professionals who have served roles as buyers, consultants, and advisors.

Sourcing Assessments: Assessment of the current state of sourcing in your organization with industry best practices. The scope can include both IT and Non-IT workforce. The gap assessment can review all sourcing channels and provides the in-depth understanding of sourcing framework and recommendations. The scope can also include conducting benchmark for various areas (pricing, quality, performance, contract, SOWs etc…), contract renegotiation support and improvement recommendations for a retained organization.

Sourcing Strategy: Proprietary frameworks and experience to review the maturity of your core capabilities to establish your sourcing strategy. In this process, we will review your drivers in alignment with business, governance, sourcing mix, conduct financial analysis and share several scenario recommendations for your decisions.

Sourcing Design: Once your strategy is designed we will work closely with your teams to ensure your strategy implementation. The core capabilities required to ensure an end to end readiness will be reviewed for maturity and any gaps will be addressed leveraging our ready to be deployed templates, tools and industry best practices.

Vendor Selection Process: We will review and capture your requirements into documents and run the vendor selection processes. At every step of the process, we will prepare and review the RFP/RFP, SOW, Contracts, SLA, and Provider Capabilities to ensure best fit for your company. The scope can include contract negotiation. A detailed roadmap and project plan will be prepared in the beginning of the assignment for your approval.

Service Transition: We have experience doing small to large scale transitions in both waterfall as well as agile environments. We can bring forward deep experience in transition planning and support. 

Sourcing Maturity Leadership: Consulting to transition services into managed services and unit of work models, establish right SLAs and governing frameworks and bringing forward continuous improvement and lean six sigma practices to position the portfolio on the path of continuous improvement.
