  6. 6. BUYER TRENDS TO WATCHIN 2012  Operating Models going retro:  Frustrated with supplier rising costs, governance challenges and uneven performance, insourcing is being explored by more clients  Continued hiring and attrition challenges and overall governance requirements will accelerate buyers to move to managed services models  Professionalization of Outsourcing:  Supplier management and governance challenges will help clients recognize the need to have professionally trained managers.  Programs such as COP from IAOP, and workshops from companies like Neo Group will be leveraged more.  Recognition of clear differences in sourcing and managing the services category vs. product categories will lead to higher importance of sourcing leads and vendor managers. © 2011 Neo Group Inc.

  7. 7. SUPPLIER TRENDS TO WATCHIN 2012 M&A continue but yield little benefits Wages will rise creating increased pressure on supplier margins Pricing expected to be flat in spite of many upward pressures Utilization will strengthen next year, increasing staffing challenges on fast ramp initiatives Managed services move beneficial Geographic expansion to serve diversified needs ↯ Local ↯ Global © 2011 Neo Group Inc.

  8. 8. TRAPUNCLEAR SUPPLIER DISTINCTION No clear methodology adopted to distinguish suppliers; especially in a multi-sourcing environment Perception that existing supplier/vendor best suited for all outsourcing functions, can be dangerous In-depth analysis of supplier domain expertise and exposure critical to successful outsourcing Establish effective framework to demarcate functions and processes a supplier is most suited for © 2011 Neo Group Inc.

  9. 9. TRAPNOT FOCUSED ON COLLABORATION Maintaining a ‘Client-Vendor’ relationship instead of a ‘Partnership’ – not sustainable for long in a managed/shared services model Joint involvement and participation of client in key operational activities of supplier is critical to business transformation Sustained innovation becomes reality in collaborative relationships Effective knowledge management between all stakeholders essential to gain competitive advantage © 2011 Neo Group Inc.

  10. 10. NEED FOR PROACTIVERISK MANAGEMENT Proactive Risk Management is critical to continued growth of industry:  Greater attention to the diversity of one’s geographic portfolio  Increased attention to monitoring of risk and compliance related to disruption at supply locations and the supplier base  Real-time alerts and monitoring of events, and their disruptive impacts  Sorry for the plug but Neo’s Global Supply Risk Monitor web-service (globalsupplyriskmonitor.com) 16-12-2011 © 2011 Neo Group Inc.

  11. 11. RISE OF NEW AND EMERGINGLOCATIONS Rising Geographies take market share away from traditional locations but the pie is growing:  New destinations continue to take a share of an expanding pie  Eastern Europe & Central and South America are surging  Buyers will increasingly utilize existing suppliers Global Delivery Models to provide time zone coverage and realize true 24x7x365 support  Offshore players will continue to expand and/or setup operations in new geographies, such as Brazil, Poland, China, Mexico, and Colombia etc © 2011 Neo Group Inc.
