McDonnell Douglas, Delta, Lufthansa, Hughes Electronics, Hertz, Chase Manhattan, Herman's Sporting Goods, John Wiley & Sons, Procter & Gamble . . . these are just a few of the hundreds of companies that have discovered the advantages of outsourcing information technology services.

Written by the team that put together some of the biggest outsourcing deals of recent years, it walks you through the entire process, from determining requirements, analyzing benefits, and setting objectives, to selecting a vendor, structuring a deal, and managing vendor relations.
