As Services Procurement Month comes to a close, we hope our series of blogs, podcast, analyst resources and webinar with Forrester helped you become more fluent in this under-understood area. The continuing positive reaction to everything we shared shows us that there is enormous interest in the topic, as well as a hunger (and big need) for more learning. So while you catch up on – or review – our services procurement resources, keep an eye out for even more in the weeks and months ahead.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any comments and suggestions of content you’d like to see at firstname.lastname@example.org.
