  • Acuity Knowledge Partners (Acuity) conducted a vendor identification exercise for strategic alliance by mapping the existing business models and visions through the following ways:
  • Consultative research approach
    • Utilising its telecom domain expertise, Acuity recommended a methodology and defined the research approach to achieve the client’s ultimate objective
  • Initial screening
    • Identified companies in focused sectors and created an initial list based on operating/delivery capabilities in identified regions
  • Filtering based on specific synergies
    • Mapped the shortlisted companies in other four service categories, filtered initial 100 companies and conducted a deep-dive analysis to identify and suggest three to four closely mapped companies
