“In the boardroom discussions on globalization risk assessments are underestimated. The discussion about onshore, nearshore or offshore locations is too much focused on costs and supply chain issues. But a full assessment of all types of risks has to be incorporated in the discussion as well”, says René Buck, CEO of Buck Consultants International.
Buck Consultants International developed a Risk Assessment Method of countries, regions and locations around the world in which 22 different risks are identified, grouped into six larger categories
René Buck is very pleased with the huge interest of the international business community in BCI’s Risk Assessment Reports. “C-level executives recognize the danger of a too Western-orientated approach. A full risk assessment of potential investment locations is a very valuable and realistic contribution to a company’s global footprint decision process”.
