Location Selection Decisions: Developing a Powerful Portfolio
Market dynamics, such as continued cost pressures, evolving expectations beyond labor arbitrage, and new services rapidly gaining maturity, are forcing buyers to re-evaluate their global delivery models. A critical pillar of a successful global delivery model is effective design and optimal management of a global location portfolio.
India and Philippines continue to be the dominant locations of choice. However, the number of credible location options in Central and Eastern Europe, Central and South America, China, South and South-east Asia, and Africa is expanding rapidly. Understanding and balancing the trade-offs posed by these locations is important to ensure the attainment of cost and risk objectives for the global delivery model.
Join us for this insightful one-hour webinar, in which our team of researchers will:
- Provide you with an overview of key global locations
- Perform a deep-dive into established and emerging locations to unlock their value proposition for offshore delivery
- Address how to achieve effective design and optimal management of a global location portfolio
