Forrester’s supplier partnership assessment model consists of 19 evaluation criteria that measure three important qualities: trust, innovation, and a focus on your success. You can use it as is to assess partners and potential partners or tailor it to your organization’s needs.
This tool is an update of an earlier supplier assessment tool that we published in August 2013.
Please read the “How To Pick Strategic Partners For Your Digital Transformation” Forrester report prior to beginning this assessment. The report introduces the criteria and explains why they are important for identifying good strategic partners.
