What to Watch: Global Risk Update, Q1 2015

Written by Laurence Blanchette

When you hear about an upcoming monsoon, government election, or change in a business regulation, do you just note it as a piece of news or do you think through the implications on your ability to deliver from the affected location? What about the impact on any service providers you use in that location?

Often in offshoring and outsourcing, companies account for operational or technical risks but do not factor in location risks. Thinking about risk in isolation of location context is a risk in and of itself.

Join Neo Group SVP and Risk Expert, Christine Ferrusi Ross, for an overview of major location-based risks from this past quarter, how to think through the different kinds of location-based risks, and how you can use that information to be more strategic and effective in your global delivery.

You will learn:

  • – What are the major global events that affected location risks?
  • – Which geographic risks are rising, and which are falling?
  • – How can companies use location-specific information to lower their supplier risk?
