Advanced Service Levels - Discussion Forum - December 5, 2018
Most outsourcing agreements have some service levels that were developed by the original deal team with the intent of managing performance. Many of this were not established effectively and are not being used to produce the service provider behavior and service delivery outcomes that was desired by the buy side organization. Most agreements have provisions to enable periodic review and adjustment of service levels to better reflect buy side organization priorities and changing service delivery focus.
There are several structural models being adopted that do provide the right mix of service level performance, ensuring a focus on the critical performance indicators. How can you design the actual service level structure effectively? What are the types of performance measurement? How are Service Level Requirement remedy models being structured to delivery results? What are the common challenges and advanced best practices?
Join us on December 5th where Merit Outsourcing Advisors will present some of the best practices used in organizations with effective service level management. Merit Outsourcing Advisors will be joined by a buy side client, a third party leading lawyer and a service provider where you can ask questions and hear their perspectives on the key topics.
