Outsourcing has seen a rise in significance in recent times. This course will help you discover the benefits and problems involved and what it takes to develop and sustain effective outsourcing relationships, helping you decide if it will work for your organisation.

Outsourcing can mean many things but the simplest explanation is that outsourcing is asking another company to do a job or perform a service that your company could do, but for some reason, chooses not to do. The main driver for outsourcing is normally cost; to decrease the cost of production of goods or decrease the cost of providing a service.
