Outsourcing & Offshoring
Often an emotive subject in any organisation, outsourcing is one of the most efficient and quick ways to accelerate a business, either in terms of operational efficiencies or improved R&D.
The most common factor for not outsourcing is fear of failure. And with good cause. Many outsourced ventures fail, only to be re-insourced at great cost and loss of time, effort and business momentum.
Executed correctly, however, it is possible to make any outsourced venture - whether an individual project, programme or division - a success, not only financially but operationally as well.
