Outsourcing helps improve your firm’s performance - or does it?

Journal of Financial Transformation, 2003, vol. 8, 113-118

Abstract: We set out to give a brief outline of key studies that look at the benefits/costs of outsourcing production and services. The bulk of the evidence suggests that farming out physical components, both domestically as well as from overseas, enhances both productivity and profitability. However, the net benefit arising from outsourcing services is less clear-cut.
