Service Delivery Model
The technology and professional services industries have moved away from time and materials to subscription and value pricing models. The engagement methods have evolved to be more outcome driven and flexible to match the “as a service” model.
Outcome driven service models for a fixed monthly fee which can be modified or cancelled on a monthly payment model. Typically used for fractional professional, process improvement or software delivery. Scope is often defined in terms of capacity (number of seats, processes or projects) as opposed to a specific deliverable.
Results based pricing where a deliverable is provided for a fixed fee or payment is calculated as a percentage of savings. Inventory optimization or reduction projects and some development projects with clear scope and objectives are good candidates for value based engagement.
Time & Materials
Although less in fashion, time and materials based contracting is appropriate for projects with a large materials component. One example would be with perpetually licensed software sold with a block of implementation hours for a company that can self-implement.
