RELOCATION FEASIBILITY

This exercise results in a recommendation on “whether” a company should pursue business relocation as a course of action. In effect, the outcome represents a "Go/No Go" decision.

Representative questions answered include:
 

bullet What is the "base case" to compare relocation against?
bullet Which location/organization alternatives deserve to be evaluated (e.g., selected business units move locally while other units relocate long-distance)?
bullet What are the major impacts associated with each alternative?
bullet One-time costs
bullet Real estate
bullet Human resources
- Duplicate Operations
- Transition Management
bullet Recurring costs
bullet Payroll
bullet Occupancy
bullet Taxes
bullet Transportation
bullet Potential incentives (offset)
bullet Payback/return on investment (years to recoup one-time costs)
bullet Human resource impacts
bullet Attrition
bullet Commutation (if a short-distance move)
bullet Relocation
bullet Human resource policy assumptions (e.g., relocation eligibility and assistance)
bullet Which alternative brings the most improvement regarding pertinent challenges such as
bullet Staffing critical positions from the local labor market (talent pool depth)
bullet Filling executive/specialized positions via national recruiting
bullet Achieving better, more efficient access (e.g., to customers)
bullet Domestic
bullet Global
bullet Introducing substantial change within the organization

bullet Should the company pursue locational change at this time (Go/No-Go)?
bullet If yes (go), which is the most attractive alternative to follow? , e.g.
bullet All subject business units relocate
bullet Some business units are decentralized to the field and others relocate
bullet Several business units (e.g., front office) move while others (e.g., back office) remain at the existing site
bullet If consolidation is involved, what are the pros and cons associated with relocating to existing versus greenfield sites?
