Over the course of a typical five-year contract, significant shifts and changes occur in the global sourcing environment, such as opening up of new destinations, emergence of new vendors, introduction of new services, development of new methods and tools, innovative platforms and technologies, evolution of new engagement and pricing models, and so on. In addition, organizations themselves experience profound change in such areas as business processes, organizational structure, business strategy and competition. Consequently, when a services contract is due for expiration or renegotiation, organizations have a timely opportunity to fully review their sourcing model and re-align sourcing strategies with their business.
