Here are the main reasons for outsourcing as per the Outsourcing World Summit (IAOP):
Outsourcing is subcontracting a process to a third-party company. It involves the transfer of the management and/ or day-to-day execution of an entire business function to an external service provider. Strategic outsourcing emerges when firms rely on intermediates such as SCMO to provide specialized capabilities & expertise that supplement existing capabilities along a firm’s value chain. The client organization and the supplier enter into a contractual agreement that defines the transferred services.
Outsourcing creates value within firms’ supply chains in many ways. As described above, the decision to outsource is often made in the interest of lowering costs. It also allows companies and organizations to focus time & energy on their core business competencies, and to make more efficient use of people, capital, IT and resources.
