When outsourcing goes wrong, it is the devil to put right. Beware the shiny suits – look out for the horns!!
When a company decides that Outsourcing is the most appropriate solution be that for a relatively small non-core function e.g. procurement or for a large part of the back-end services e.g. IT – typically the next steps they take will dictate if the outcome is a strategic success or an unmitigated disaster. That outcome is further influenced by the advice/guidance companies engage to help with the solution design, implementation, and outcome.
Tips to Maximise your Chances of Success/Minimise the Chances of Disaster;
Never depend on the Service Provider/Outsourcing Provider to also be your advisor – don’t dance with the devil!
Don’t underestimate the amount of due diligence you will need to do within your organisation to comprehensively identify the impact, cost, timeline, and savings – don’t cut corners.
If the experience/expertise of having managed and implemented a large outsourcing project does not lie within your organization – engage a reputable independent to provide the guidance and advice and to be your outsourcing Talisman – increase your chance of success by 100%
