BUYER TRENDS TO WATCH

IN 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.

SUPPLIER TRENDS TO WATCH

IN 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. All rights reserved. Reproduction of this document or any portion thereof without prior written consent is prohibited

TRAP

UNCLEAR 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.

8


TRAP

NOT 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

NEED FOR PROACTIVE

RISK 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

RISE OF NEW AND EMERGING

LOCATIONS

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 supplier's 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
