Outsourcing is now a central issue for companies large and small, and the market size goes on expanding. But, few executives really understand how to go about deciding what should be outsourced, how to do it, and how to manage the various stakeholders. This book fills a major gap in the middle-high-end of the market for a book that shows senior executives how to decide what to outsource and then how to do it, taking into account the human side. The book aims to ensure that more outsourcing deals are structured for long-term success, and shows that this depends on initial and ongoing executive commitment and sponsorship by both the client and the providers. The authors are both global leaders in outsourcing consulting, have set out to write a fast, well-paced read appropriate for a variety of industries.
