TSIA CEO J.B. Wood discusses the root causes of the current impasse that often stalls customer spending. He also unveils a completely new framework that helps companies better align how they operate with how their customers achieve outcomes. The framework can also help to structure and simplify the stressful internal transformation conversations currently taking place inside many tech suppliers. Armed with these insights, viewers will be able to more objectively identify the challenges facing their company and their service organizations. They will also get clear answers about what to do next to enable service organizations to transition their value proposition from being product-focused to customer outcome-focused in order to defend, protect, and grow their revenue.
B4B has implications for every service discipline. You can learn more about how each area will be impacted with one of our new discipline-specific B4B research reports. Begin by selecting your focus area below:
