Outsourcing 101

Outsourcing business processes and special projects improves not only the lives of small- and mid-sized business owners, but also helps these organizations generate revenues, increase profits, and reach their potential faster and easier. By freeing up limited internal resources through outsourcing, clients of outsourcing services are able to quickly and effectively fill in the gaps of their organizations.

Some of the primary drivers behind the decision to outsource include cost and expertise. The thing to remember is that if someone else can do it better and less expensively than you doing it yourself, outsourcing could be the right decision for you.

But, how do you outsource effectively? Through collaboration and communication. Outsourcing partners are similar to most vendors in that when they succeed, you succeed. It's vital to collaborate and help your outside partners align themselves with your strategic goals. Clear communication is also key to building a successful and long-lasting outsourcing relationship.

Finally, whatever you're looking to outsource needs to be SMART -- specific, measurable, agreed upon, realistic, and timely. In order to get the best return on your outsourcing investment, make sure the tasks and projects are clear in terms of expectations and outcomes.
