There is no doubt that companies are now under huge pressure to show evidence of cost reduction, but this also needs to be achieved through a sustainable model. While there will be some ‘knee-jerk’ deals done as a reaction to the economic downturn, supplier value propositions are under the microscope as clients look ensure not only value for money, but also strategic success.
In addition, the amount of highly skilled labour currently unemployed around the world has made staffing a shared service centre or centre of excellence somewhat easier, in turn making the competitive landscape for IPAs (Investment Promotion Agencies) more fierce.
As an outsourcing supplier or IPA, does the market truly understand your value proposition? Are you speaking to the right people, at the right time, to get your value proposition across?
