Many organizations have turned to outsourcing to take advantage of the low labor costs of emerging and second-world countries. Some reaped the benefits; others found little savings and myriad challenges. While offshoring and nearshoring will continue to be part of the strategic sourcing process, organizations using these strategies must frequently review total landed cost and compare it to onshoring or insourcing. This session will outline important regulations and compliance demands to consider, sourcing partner responsibilities, environmental considerations, and more.
