This article provides a practical approach for making site selection decisions driven by organizational business needs. New site selection decisions are best made when: business needs and opportunities drive new site exploration, vision and goals to be achieved are clear, the site selection team possesses the right skill set and works to a plan. Using a practical approach fosters rapid decisionmaking. The approach is appropriate for small, medium and large companies. The practical process positions leaders to apply it quickly and help their organizations realize the benefits of new site selection as outsourcing and globalization continues at an unprecedented rate.
