Workshop: Repatriating and/or Reshoring Outsourced Services – Validate Services Chosen, Approach Envisioned and Expected Outcomes  


Coming out of a major disruption, more and more organizations are discussing repatriation and/or reshoring options to fix current service disruption and to reduce risk of future disruption for currently Outsourced Services. Some organizations are realizing a new-normal and what to take back control and transform the services. 


If you or your organization is looking at exploring repatriation and/or reshoring, join us on October 8th where Core & R3P will be delivering an “interactive members only” workshop where we will discuss: 


  1. Review recent Canadian service disruptions and associated repatriations. 
  2. Identify/validate “at risk” outsourced/offshored services via a third-party risk and location risk profiling; short-list candidates for repatriation/reshore.
  3. Overview of key repatriation scenarios: urgent/reactive, proactive/like4beter and strategic transformation will be characterized and contrasted. 
  4. Workshop repatriation scenario classification of short-list services, as well as, key decisions, considerations and expectations of each scenario


In order to shape the discussion, each participant will be asked to complete a questionnaire in advance of the discussion to provide a better understanding of your backgrounds and scenarios of interest. 




The participants will be able to go back to their own organization to classify repatriation scenario, approach and characterize size/scope and approximate repatriation timeline.


The participants will better understand the repatriation approaches associated with urgent/reactive, proactive/Like4Better and strategic transformation; as well as other key decisions and considerations
