Managing Globalization = Managing Locational Differences
®Globalizing firms or established multinational corporations are often confronted with the following question:

  • Where do we establish our next business activity?
  • Are we still operating in the most cost efficient locations? 
  • Can we enhance our cash flows through location portfolio optimization?
  • What savings and targets would we like to achieve through a new investment project?
  • Are the locations we anticipate still cost competitive in five years time?
  • Where have our competitors recently set up operations?
  • What would be the impact on customer perception
  • How do we manage this offshore project?
  • What is the ideal structure of our project team – which disciplines and cultures?
  • How do we manage multiple external and internal stakeholders within the firm?
