About Us

Welcome to ‘The Outsource Blog’, for  general discussion, news & views about Outsourcing and Offshoring. This group is for exchanging ideas, debating issues and collaborating with other industry professionals.

For our old archive starting form 2005, click here.

“Outsourcing” became part of the Business lexicon during the 1980s and refers to the delegation of non-core operations from internal production to an external entity specializing in the management of that operation. “Outsourcing” is utilizing experts from outside the entity to perform specific tasks that the entity once perform itself.

The process of “Outsourcing” formalizes the description of the non-core operation into a contractual relationship between the client and the supplier. Under the new contractual agreement the supplier acquires the means of production which may include people, processes, technology, intellectual property and assets. The structure of the client organization changes as the client agrees to procure the services of the outsourcer for the term of the contractual agreement.

The decision to “Outsource” is often made in the interest of lowering firm costs, redirecting or conserving energy directed at the competencies of a particular business, or to make more efficient use of labor, capital, technology and resources.

  5. Hi,

    First of all, thank you for your interest in our blog, Outsourcing Insider. We have noticed that your blog has been re-posting our blog articles, which is really not a problem for us, and is actually very much appreciated. However, we would like to request that if you do so, to please post a live link back to the source (our blog) instead of just writing it at the bottom as text, especially since beneath the title of your re-post, there is an “author” of the post cited, which is a bit misleading. A “no-follow” with the link is no problem with us as long as the link is clickable.

    Thank you!

    Regards,
    Outsourcing Insider
