Better draw your own conclusions
As a Poland based Software service provider we should not mind the above mentioned result. It is great to be seen as one of the safest destinations for outsourcing. To be honest I really think Poland is a good destination for a lot of companies. For more information please read my previous post: “Poland still among the top offshore locations”.
On the other hand I am rather shocked by the list of so-called risky locations. Based on recent research by AT Kearney, I do not understand the risky list. As always this most probable has to do with “definitions”. Also our own experiences and several comments you can read online show that at least the list with risky places is rather doubtful.
In general I would advise to use these lists to make up your own mind. It all boils down to one obvious conclusion- a destination has to fit your company’s needs and this entails a complex evaluation process. It is highly probable that you will take into account different indicators that will be more relevant in the case of your company. Our consulting and outsourcing experience have shown us these differences already many times.
