Focus on Core Competency

Nowadays, when it comes to outsourcing functions, businesses often consider, “How much should we outsource, and to whom?” rather than “should we or shouldn’t we?” It all comes down to focusing on your company’s core competencies and choosing the right outsourcing partners to work with.

Running a business often means there are plenty of inevitable tasks on your to-do list that do not require your expertise or generate income. It is more efficient to spend your time and resources doing what you excel at.

A typical misconception regarding outsourcing is that it will take jobs away from your local team or add challenges to the company’s daily operation. This is not really the case. In most cases, offshore employees perform repetitive, process-driven tasks while in-house employees focus on your core competencies, high-value tasks. Outsourcing non-core activities allows you to tap into the key capabilities of others and better focus on your own. Companies with core competencies have distinct advantages that set them apart from the competition.

When looking for an outsourcing provider, ask the suppliers questions that will give you a deeper understanding of their processes. Guarantee a successful partnership by selecting the right outsourcing provider with appropriate methodologies and practices for your business.

Keeping strategy in-house and sending implementation offshore is an example of a highly effective offshore model.

During periods of rapid growth, back-office operations of a business tend to increase. As a result, you may find that your people and financial resources are diverted from the core activities that made your business successful in the first place.

For example, say your firm wins a major contract that will result in a dramatic increase in the volume of purchasing. By outsourcing purchasing duties, you free up staff to concentrate on the contract itself. Local employee roles aren’t eliminated by outsourcing; they’re just given more time to focus on the activities they enjoy doing. In turn, this will lead to a higher level of productivity, staff satisfaction and retention.

Outsourcing has a number of other benefits, including:

Lower expenses

Outsourcing enables operations or departments with cyclical demands to bring in extra people as needed, giving you staffing flexibility while also cutting costs.

Quality service

When you outsource a work, project, or process to an outsourcing partner, you are taking advantage of the specific service and knowledge they offer.

Capital for expansion

Outsourcing may be used as a strategy to encourage innovation, disrupt your industry and acquire new competencies which reposition your business on the market as it expands.
