Conference Overview

Access. Knowledge. Connections.
In an industry that changes daily and demands immediate responses, staying informed, engaged and one step ahead is critical as outsourcing is causing adjustment challenges everywhere. With more than 600 executives joining Balanced Viewpoint since the introduction of our outsourcing briefings in 2004, and after our very successful inaugural Multisourcing Strategies Summit in November 2006, Balanced Viewpoint is pleased to announce its second annual conference on worldsourcing.

  • The most significant trends, drivers, business models, issues and risks that have an impact on worldsourcing decision making
  • How creating extended organizations will assist firms to stay ahead of the competition and the role that worldsourcing plays in this new organization design
  • Assessing the comparative benefits of various regions and cities drives the balancing of risks and benefits and creates an optimal fit based on the company’s specific business requirements
  • How a combination of a talented labor pool, rapidly developing infrastructure, a burgeoning domestic market and rapid investment is quickly making China a credible alternative to India
  • How some regions and countries are emerging outsourcing hotspots with great future potential, niche capabilities and unique differentiators, but for different reasons
