  10. 10. Business Advantages 1. Outsourced management costs: As outsourcing trends increase, so do the costs of managing these arms-length relationships. Enabling collaboration across the extended enterprise can both reduce such costs (e.g., miscommunication, re-work on products, and missed deadlines) and enable greater effectiveness. 2. Being wrong early, being right more often: The ability to quickly test new ideas and make necessary iterations is a strategic advantage. ‘Fast-to-failure’ is often as important as ‘fast-to-success’ in today’s demanding marketplace, where a 40% success rate is considered exceptional. 3. Reducing error rates and re-work time: An estimated 35% of all scientific, marketing, engineering and sales research dollars are wasted in re-work. Even a modest 10% reduction in re-work through improved collaboration would result in millions of dollars in cost savings for most medium or large enterprises. 4. Becoming the first in licensing new technology, thus strengthening the innovation pipeline 5. Discerning new trends owing to tighter collaboration with field resources 6. Driving increased employee engagement and satisfaction - which leads to increased employee and customer loyalty.10 © Happiest Minds – Confidential
