Statement of Work (SOW)

GET IN TOUCH

Through our Statement of Work solution, Valinor, we bring quality, efficiency and transparency to every SoW programme we work on. Led by SoW experts, we manage the end-to-end process of each programme with complete care and control, so you can be confident of a timely and effective delivery.

Statement of Work
What is Statement of Work?

Statement of Work (SOW) models are outcome-based contracts. We provide experts to deliver services against a defined set of outputs, milestones, or deliverables. If need be, we can manage the full SOW lifecycle, including scoping requirements, service delivery, administration and management of processes, offices and workers, and measurement. We also undertake projects of varying scales and durations and can deliver onsite at client premises or from our own locations.

Statement of Work
Why is Statement of Work important?

SOW offers an alternative to conventional recruitment models. Instead of supplying resources on an hourly basis, SOW provides fixed costs for achieving set milestones or deliverables. SOW is important because it offers an alternative for businesses whose requirements mean they may not get the same value in terms of cost and efficiency from traditional talent models.

Is Statement of Work right for me?

If you need to deliver a project within set timeframes and in set cost parameters, then Statement of Work might be right for you. These projects will sit outside or alongside your business-as-usual and include mobilising a team of experts to deliver.

Statement of Work Case Study
Proven capability

A multinational automotive company wanted to implement a Statement of Work (SoW) solution to gain control, improve cost management and harness expertise outside of its internal team. Lorien currently manages two SoW solutions covering 20 people on behalf of the client. Quarterly reviews based on milestones hit and SLA deliverables means a continuous feedback loop and clear, transparent activity tracking. The SoW workers act as ServiceNow product experts for high priority projects – giving the client access to expertise without the time and cost management of traditional recruitment models.
