eSCM Capability Determination Options

« back

ITSqc, LLC supports the following options for organization undergoing an Capability Determination based on the eSourcing Capability Models.

Evaluation for Certification Options
Only a Full Evaluation for Certification or a Mini Evaluation for Certification leads to ITSqc certification. These are third-party external evaluations of an organization's capability, based on evidence of the organization's implementation of either the eSCM-SP (for service providers) or the eSCM-CL (for clients). Certification should be sought when an organization wants a public record of its capabilities.

Evaluation of all Model Practices with remote observation by a Senior ITSqc representative, review and decision by the ITSqc Certification Board, issuance of the certificate, and posting on the ITSqc website

Self-Appraisal Options
Full or Mini Self-appraisals may be conducted by Authorized Lead Evaluators and the pricing for these events is determined by the participating organization and the Lead Evaluator.
Capability Determination Type ITSqc Fee
Full Self-appraisal

The Full Self-appraisal examines all of the eSCM Practices. A Self-appraisal does not result in certification. It supports capability improvement in an organization by comparing performance with eSCM Model Practices and indicating gaps that need to be addressed. It may also be used to prepare for a Full Evaluation for Certification.
No certification fee
Mini Self-appraisal

A Mini Self-appraisal is an appraisal, addressing a subset of the eSCM Model Practices, that does not result in certification. It is used to rapidly and economically check the status of an organization’s improvement efforts. It can also be used as a means of determining gaps between actual and desired capabilities, and for initiating improvement efforts to address those gaps.
No certification fee

Certification Paths

There are multiple paths to certiification. Some organizations will choose to use a Full Evaluation for Certification as their initial Capability Determination. Other organizations may choose to use Capabuility Determinations as a way to foster and measure progress towards certification.

Paths to Certification

Both example paths to certification shown here begin with a Mini Self-appraisal as a gap analysis, and end with a Full Evaluation for Certification. One path does this via a Full Self-appraisal, while the other does it via a Mini Evaluation.
