What to Outsource?

Most of us understand that in the globalized world of free trade one has to be competitive. This means freedom to outsource material or services and part or whole of your business process wherever you get the best quality and service at the lowest ultimate cost.

If we accept this premise, we have to understand what we should outsource to stay at the leading edge of competition.

There is anger in developed countries that their jobs have been taken away by reckless outsourcing and governments are giving incentives to bring back manufacturing and services. The world has already chosen the path of free market shown by the west and there is no going back to the pop and mom store days. In today’s world you don’t create jobs by raising fences or closing doors, you do it by coming out and fighting the competition by being at the leading edge of competition.

Core Capabilities
It is important to understand your core business. Like Peter Drucker says – Do what you do best, outsource the rest.

You should stay in the driving seat and not lose control of your core strength by outsourcing it. Human beings have reached where we have because we have the capacity to learn from our experience and accumulate layers upon layers of knowledge and skill when we perform a task or a process. This immense benefit is lost to you if you outsource away your core strength and become dependent upon someone thousands of miles away.

Cost Benefit Analysis
Every business process is made up of a series of tasks which comprise of activities which have input time and costs. The output is the value gain or benefit it contributes to the process or value chain. Cases where cost to benefit ratio is high need to be considered for outsourcing provided they are not critical to the process. This way you reduce the costs without exposing yourself to undue risks.

As the outsourcers gain confidence in their providers and a relationship develops more and more areas of activity are outsourced and the provider becomes a virtual partner in progress.

Service providers and virtual assistants claim that if they have local skills available they can do anything that their clients want as they can hear, see and work in real time from remote.
