eSourcing Capability Model for Client Organizations (eSCM-CL)
Pawan Khera, Bill Hefley
Also appears as IT Services Qualification Center
The ultimate success of the eSCM-CL model will be demonstrated when model adopters see fewer sourcing relationships that end due to deficiencies in service providers' performance, more effective and efficient management of service providers, better relationships between client organizations and their service providers, and increased business value arising from client organization's sourcing activities.
The eSCM-CL was developed by a consortium led by Carnegie Mellon University's Information Technology Services Qualification Center (ITSqc). This work began in March 2003, with the eSCM-CL being released in September 2006. Data collection activities during the model development included an extensive review of the published literature; interviews with clients, service providers, and advisors; and multiple workshops with global participation.
The literature review used to support the design of this model is represented in this Annotated Bibliography and is organized into two sections. The first section provides annotated entries that are ordered alphabetically by author's last name. In the second section, the entries are arranged in a topical bibliography. This topical bibliography is organized into sections addressing existing frameworks and each of the Capability Areas (CA) of the eSourcing Capability Model for Client Organizations (eSCM-CL).
