Home > Demerits of Outsourcing
Outsourcing is a good start for your business to help grow. Plus, some of the processes are temporary and the organization doesn’t need to spend on those to hire in-house professionals to perform the tasks. Apart from the huge advantages, there’s been some cons too. You should know the disadvantages-
But, remember the merits can out-shadow the demerits. It’s just that you should be aware and do the things wisely to get the season in your favor.
Here is a small list of situations when outsourcing would be inappropriate at sometimes.
First things first, you must set your mission statement as without one you can’t reach your mindset success line and long-term goals. This dire planning step will make sure you stay focused on what you hope to get off an outsourcing emerging.
Now that you have a plan, you need to sell the idea internally for which you need to hire the well-trained on-board executive team from the day one. If not so, your whole project will be doomed. Prepare to answer the difficult questions on how your plan is going to profit the business and then address them to the employees as well.
Now, you head to make your first phone calls, but don’t think these calls as sales, but treat them as the interview calls. Just understand the other person’s skills and motives such as if they know about your industry? Do they have clients? Are they understanding your project mission? Are they ready to work with you to achieve the success criteria for your company? And so on…
Be ready to go instinctively. Cultural differences are obvious if you start from another country, the national holidays, standard working hours, etc. varies from country to country. So don’t go for an outsourcing to that part of the place where the holidays and your busiest time could clash. Language is almost another barrier. You need to train your team the language of that particular place where you’re outsourcing your business to.
If you have chosen the right partner, then the ratio of getting the references are pretty good. First, you should seek those companies who have already worked for years with your prospective outsourcing vendor. Ask them about their success and failures. Do your own research too, and it will help your business and social network stronger.
Last but not least, review your contract one last time, very precisely and be sure to revisit your project charter. Talk to them if you want some changes to make regarding your goals.
