Coffee Chat #5: Build, Buy, and Partner
Ward Christman from HR Tech Alliances led an engaging discussion as people were truly challenged to answer the strategic question, do you Build, Buy or Partner? We discovered that some of the key reasons to ask the question are: avoid wasting time going down the ‘wrong’ road, cost could vary widely depending on choice, and to more quickly react to changing market conditions. Poll: When customers ask for new capabilities, which of the 3 routes does your company take most often? Build 60%, Buy 20%, and Partner 30%.
