Vested Outsourcing

What started out as a simple research project aimed at finding a better way to outsource evolved into a groundbreaking and award-winning methodology and business model coined as ‘Vested’. A hybrid business model, methodology, mindset and movement based on research conducted by the University of Tennessee Center for Executive Education and funded by the U.S. Air Force.

Business giants like P&G, McDonald’s and Microsoft are embracing this unconventional “What’s In It for We” approach, and the results are exciting: new levels of opportunity and innovation, uncontested market share, efficiency and untethered problem solving–for everyone involved.
