Myths about outsourcing and how to know the truth

Everything You Need To Know About Outsourcing.

Not a single day goes by without a mainstream newspaper decrying the job losses or closure of some facility due to outsourcing. These are legitimate concerns.

However, if outsourcing is carried out for the right reasons (and we discussed the reasons in detail in the previous chapter) it provides ample growth and profitability opportunity to the businesses and the economies.

Learn From These Mistakes Before You Learn Outsourcing.

Certainly there are displacements and adjustments in the economies that need to be handled with compassion, creativity and flexibility.

At the same time, we must remember that if the luddites had carried the day, we might have never seen the industrial revolution.

How Outsourcing Can Ease Your Pain.

I say this at the outset of this Chapter in order to ask you to be objective and rational when you examine the myths surrounding outsourcing.

There are probably dozens, if not hundreds of myths that keep circulating on this topic.

Most are self-serving rumours started by people directly affected by the decisions and events. Some are part of the sales arsenal of the service providers,

while others are defensive myths designed to freeze any potential moves towards outsourcing in their tracks.

So, why should you read this chapter with interest on Supply Chain?

Recognizing the key myths, and understanding the reasons why they are false will help you discern specious arguments, whether during sales process, or in subsequent management of the outsourcing arrangement.

It will also spur you on to dig out facts, and use facts to foil attempts of disinformation.

Using facts to make decisions, and to present information will help you gain credibility, profits and promotion.

Moreover, if you think deeply enough about why people perpetuate myths about outsourcing, you will discover what questions to ask of your outsourcing service providers in order to retain the leverage and advantage..

Here's What No One Tells You About Outsourcing.

I have been writing about the myths and communication issues prevalent in outsourcing almost since I co-founded Global Supply Chain Group in 2000.

Many of my articles and white papers on the topic have been published in a plethora of business magazines from which I have distilled the key essence in this chapter.
