Description - Smart Sourcing by Andrew Kakabadse

With a growing market currently in excess of $150 billion, outsourcing has become a critical boardroom agenda. Meeting this challenge, Andrew and Nada Kakabadse answers key boardroom questions: What will be the key areas of outsourcing in the future? The answer is IT and HR; What supplier relationships work best: partnerships, joint ventures? The answer is: no, the preferred single supplier still provides best service; Does well managed outsourcing make a difference? The answer is: substantially, both strategic and operational. One of the largest international surveys on outsourcing, "Smart Sourcing" highlights what it takes to be "outsource ready" and thus become a high performing company. The message is to focus on your strengths and know how to use others in order to clearly differentiate.
