9780230623170: Vested Outsourcing: Five Rules That Will Transform Outsourcing

Change is the new status quo in today’s business world. New smart, lean and more efficient methods for increasing a company’s market share and top line have been created, and the adoption of their methods and practices will be the differentiator between growth or failure in this new business environment.

In Vested Outsourcing, supply-chain innovator and lead researcher Kate Vitasek has created a new business model that will transform outsourcing procedures the way business management strategies Six Sigma and Lean improved production processes in the 1980s and 90s. Based on a research study by the University of Tennessee with the United States Air force, Vitasek has identified the top 10 critical (and often invisible) flaws inherent in almost all outsourced business relationships. She then shows organizations how to reinvent their outsourcing relationships to ignite innovation, improve service, lower costs and increase profit.

Cliff Lynch author of Logistics Outsourcing: A Management Guide


Vested Outsourcing is new business model that will transform outsourcing procedures the way business management strategies Lean and Six Sigma transformed manufacturing.”

Elizabeth Kanna author and creator of several market-defining books


Vested Outsourcing is a game-changing approach that will quickly become the new gold standard for advanced outsourcing relationships. It is a critical enabler for Outsourcing 2.0.”

Frank Casale – CEO, Outsourcing Institute


“Vested Outsourcing nails how to get collaboration right.”

Todd Shire – Global Logistics Sourcing Strategy Manager, Intel


“Applying Vested Outsourcing’s Five Rules has the power to change the game of outsourcing.”

Tim McBride Chief Procurement Officer, Microsoft


“For those involved in outsourcing, or selling to those who outsource, this book should be required reading.”
 
Kenneth B. Ackerman–Ackerman Warehousing Forum  “A unique book on many levels . . . surprisingly detailed, yet easy concept book to read. I read the book in a single sitting. I predict that, as a concept, vested outsourcing will take its place alongside the six sigma quality concept and the lean operations concept in future business communications as well as conferences.   George A. Gecowets–Founder and former CEO of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals
