We also looked at our client’s capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses across each of the 20 countries and prioritized segments based on that understanding as well as the market segment’s general attractiveness.
We provided recommendations on the suggested approach – including service offerings, delivery locations, and technology-related issues – for expanding in the prioritized countries. The client used the analysis and recommendations to strategize its investment priorities.
