When selecting a delivery partner, a number of elements will fall into the equation. Selection processes will vary between organisations, as will past experiences, and delivery priorities.
Core to the selection should be an assessment where the weightings of different factors are considered, prospective partners are scored and the outputs quantified. Whilst first impressions, vendor approved partners, shared experiences from competitors and existing relationships with vendors are important, any decision reached needs to be justifiable if delivery starts to falter.
