When searching for a new IT service provider, it is important that you have ‘a good feeling’ about your future supplier, as you will be working closely together for the coming years. Traditional selection processes often follow a rigid path, but an approach based on dialogue offers a valuable alternative that transforms and optimizes the process. 

In selection processes using a dialogue approach, the focus is on creating interaction, a way for parties to truly get to know each other. This goes beyond just exchanging information about technical capabilities; it’s about understanding each other’s desires, culture, values, and long-term goals. This introduction lays a solid foundation for a fruitful collaboration. 

Another advantage of the dialogue approach is improved process efficiency. By promoting open communication, potential partners can collaborate to refine the project scope and identify potential challenges before a final Request for Proposal (RFP) is drafted. This prevents misunderstandings and unnecessary delays in later stages of the process. An additional benefit is the opportunity to adjust the requirements before the final RFP is released. 

Through ongoing dialogue, both parties can share their insights and provide feedback, resulting in a more accurate RFP tailored to the needs of the client and the capabilities of the providers. 

Selection processes via a dialogue approach offer a valuable opportunity to establish a solid foundation for long-term, successful collaborations.
