A global broker can be a strategic and effective partnership in helping to transform a company’s efforts globally. Engaging all company stakeholders, aligning the broker reporting structure to the company and working out potential challenges early in the process will make the relationship stronger. Building measurable SLAs, developing an issue escalation process and reviewing the broker on a regular basis can keep all parties accountable and provide awareness of issues. With these key components, companies can work with their global brokers to make their global strategic initiatives a reality.
