Software Selection Workshop

Rapid Application
Selection Workshop

For a more hands-on approach, we will work through a full selection project virtually, using our Rapid Application Selection Framework (RASF).

Traditional selection processes are long and complex, and they often do not guarantee success. The RASF reduces time on non-value-add activities while emphasizing what matters to you: business value, differentiating requirements, and contract terms.

The virtual workshop is a 40-hour process delivered over six to eight weeks, designed to select most commodity-level applications. Led by our expert facilitators, we will work collaboratively through the process of selecting the best solution for your organization.
