PRACTICE NOTE #1: BEYOND SANCTIONS: MANAGING RISKS FROM BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS IN IRAN
One of the key risks for companies doing business in Iran—or any market where business practices do not adhere to international standards—is working with local business partners and suppliers. In this Practice Note, IBR uses real company practice as the basis for suggesting a three-part approach to addressing partnering risks. It details measures companies can take in the partner selection process, in the preparation and design of contracts, and in the ongoing support companies give their partners. Combining real company practices with strategies necessary for the Iranian context, this Practice Note includes an interactive online feature that allows users to quickly access practice examples and areas of interest, a comprehensive Practice Note report for easy downloading and a slide presentation ready-to-use for internal company use and knowledge-sharing.
