Thursday January 01, 2009 - 12pm ET / By Stephanie Moore, VP, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
As organizations scramble to hedge their exposure to geopolitical, economic and vendor management risks, we want to bring you further insights through a second webinar on the topic of cost containment and de-risking, featuring Stephanie Moore, VP, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research.
Volatile markets are now paired with uncertainty about vendor capabilities. In the midst of the financial crisis, companies are now also being forced to revisit their vendor strategy, while still achieving dramatic cost reductions - a daunting task even for the most seasoned global sourcing veterans. We expect this webinar to provide you with an extra set of tools.
In this session we address:
A view into how industry players are mitigating outsourcing risk through a multi-geo / multi-vendor strategy
How to quickly assess improvement opportunities in your current programs in terms of costs and risks
How to mitigate risks associated with offshore in face of increased geopolitical tension
