SUMMARY OF OUTSOURCING 3.0

The book is divided into three sections - outsourcing basics, how to outsource well and a comprehensive case study.

In the first section of this book we will discuss why companies outsource. We will also discuss when to outsource, and when not to outsource – both questions are critical.

Chapter 2 describes a simple model that allows you to make such crucial decisions. Chapter 3 talks about several myths surrounding outsourcing that you need to be aware of.

Chapter 4 goes into detail of why traditional outsourcing fails and the tell-tale signs.

Chapter 5 talks about the current remedies to failures of traditional outsourcing and why they are proving inadequate.

Chapter 6 discusses how modularisation and results- focused outsourcing allows you to flexibly design your own best-of-breed solution every time.

In the second section of this book, we will address the question of how to outsource well.

Chapter 7 talks about why preparation is crucial in setting the stage for the coming game.

Chapter 8 describes how to set the rules of the game while chapter 9 discusses the actual process of vendor selection.

Chapter 10 discusses integration of vendor in your overall business network and Chapter 11 describes how to get the most value out of the entire operation.

In the third section we have a detailed case study showing how results-focused modularisation and outsourcing can work in practice to transform an entire industry, reduce the cycle time by a factor of 83% and overall costs proportionately.

More importantly, it opens up the industry to new bouts of innovation creating types of products which would not have been possible without the new model.
