Outsourcing 1

outsourcing is recommended by EFQM as it helps the organisation to focus on its core functions, cut the costs, and might help in getting better services.

I think outsourcing has proved a success in many organisations and its failure was usually related to managing the contracts and monitoring the quality or choosing the suitable resourcing provider.

it is recommended therfore that these aspects should be taken into consederation when out sourcing:

1- choosing resourcing providers and negotiating the contract conditions must me done by a team that involves all the departments affected by outsourcing such as financial, HR and others.

2- Prepare the staff in the company by informing them about the outsourcing plans. this can save the company staff resistance in the future.

3- choosing providers should have a balance between price and quality.

4- the organisation's requirements should be clearly identified before negotiating any contracts.

the subject of outsourcing is wide and I think it deserves to be explored and developed becuase it can be an opportunity to build a new business environment were sharing and cooperation is the norm.

  1. I aggree with you that outsourcing can provide benefits. I think of it as the transactions between Goverments and Private interests. There is no reason for a govermennt to have evyrything in its position. However the other edge that a goverment sells everything in the private investors can destroy a country. So it is a matter of how much you outsource. . . .. Under which contracts as well as how you manage the contracts.

  2. yes agree, and would add, ‘what you are outsourcing’ and ‘what provider you choose’
