Included in Full Research
In most deals, XLAs and business outcomes are not stitched together, significantly diminishing the business impact of delivering a better employee experience. Additionally, providers often disguise legacy SLAs as XLAs for clients, driving the wrong perception about the effectiveness of XLAs.
Clients often lack proper understanding of what an XLA is and therefore are unable to articulate their requirements properly, leading to uncertainties and dissatisfactions related to implementation.
