Review:
This handy guide presents an intelligent overview of the costs and benefits of outsourcing, its uses and applications, and the processes used to manage it. Endorsed by industry experts, it demonstrates how to deal with outsourcing as an emotional and political issue, shows how to update your business strategies to take advantage of outsourcing opportunities, and provides a wealth of resources for those who want to build a successful career in the outsourcing industries.

Outsourcing is a hot topic among business leaders and workers in the global business community. In The Black Book of Outsourcing, outsourcing gurus Doug Brown and Scott Wilson demystify the subject and show executives and staffers alike how to successfully assess and implement outsourcing, communicate internally and with partners, measure performance, and lead outsourcing transitions.

But more than just outlining best practices, the authors debunk some of the most persistent myths about outsourcing and its effects on the economy, and provide managers with the help they need. Most important, they equip you with a wide range of opportunities for professionals in the outsourcing industry, including new certification programs and key outsourcing vendors.

The Black Book of Outsourcing covers every major topic and application of outsourcing, including:

  • Outsourcing to meet new business challenges
  • Achieving outsourcing operational excellence
  • Building new revenue streams through outsourcing
  • Using outsourcing to reduce corporate risk
  • Developing value-creating outsourcing relationships
  • Building a career as an outsourcing professional

Based on Brown and Wilson's extensive experience working with dozens of companies on every aspect of outsourcing, this book provides the practical tools and information you need to make smart decisions in planning, developing, implementing, and leading effective outsourcing initiatives. Whether managers are concerned about the emotional and political side of outsourcing or the practical side of getting it done, The Black Book of Outsourcing offers comprehensive coverage, practical solutions, proven tactics, and trustworthy advice.
