Vested® is one of the Sourcing Business Models. It is a methodology, mindset and movement for creating highly collaborative business relationships that enable true win-win relationships in which both parties are equally committed to each other’s success. When applied, a Vested approach fosters an environment that sparks innovation, resulting in improved service, reduced costs and value that didn’t exist before — for both parties.
Vested is based on award-winning research conducted by the University of Tennessee College of Business Administration and funded by the U.S. Air Force.
NEVI-Purspective is official VESTED Center of excellence.
