Outsourcing:

Outsourcing involves hiring a consultant, independent contractor, or freelancer to do a specific task or tasks for an organization for which the organization may lack the time, required resources or expertise.

When outsourcing, the organization needs to:

  • ·       Decide on projects or tasks to outsource
  • ·       Choose whom to outsource these tasks to
  • ·       Effectively manage the project
  • ·       Agree on payment terms
  • ·       Manage delivery of desired results
