Objectively Analyzing your Organization’s Readiness for Outsourcing
Although every firm is a candidate for outsourcing, not every company is a good fit. Only by identifying an organization’s motivations, core competencies and corporate culture can a company properly determine if they should outsource. If the organization can clearly identify these factors as they relate to outsourcing and have a clear vision of their desired results, they should be able to objectively analyze whether an outsourcing strategy is a good fit.
An objective analysis, however, may not be as easy as one might think. It requires a look at the organization through slightly different eyes, removing the “this is how we’ve always done it” mentality and replacing it with the “if we were to start over today, how would we do it differently?” way of thinking.
This white paper will present an overview of the following issues an organization should consider when deciding whether or not to outsource its IT hardware and software infrastructure and management.
