Ace the Proof-of-Concepts, Champion New Roll-Outs

Servicization of business offerings have increased choices and opportunities for buyers but have also challenged their skillset. Whether it is procurement of emerging technologies like cloud based software and data science services or buying through leasing, financing and rental models or sourcing novel solutions from start-ups, the success of service increasingly lies on how well the proof-of-concept or pilot run was conducted, lacunae identified and risks assessed before full-fledged implementation. It applies to both strategic and tactical purchases. This session will share rules of thumb on how to get it right based on our own experience of buying and implementing new services across a range of categories like IT, supplier financing and cargo vehicles.

Learning Objectives:

  • Upon completion, participant will be able to list steps to follow to plan a successful proof-of-concept.
  • Upon completion, participant will be able to define skills required for buying emerging technologies and novel solutions & services and become more confident of doing first-time-ever deals for the organization.
  • Upon completion, participant will be able to describe importance of customer-centricity and cross-functional skills as pillars of growth in future.
