Companies outsource today to reduce cost, increase flexibility and focus on core competence. Outsourcing is not a fad, but strategic lever organizations utilize to meet their planned objectives. Outsourcing led transformations have become a mechanism for generating economies of scale, specialization and standardization.
However, most outsourcing initiatives fail to deliver the expected value. The wisdom isn't a secret -- the companies succeeding in this journey invested in building the right competencies, proper governance, and support structures to manage these initiatives.
The Customer Centric Service Competency framework introduced in this book essentially brings forward the service orientation and integrates outsourcing successfully with the usual business of an IT organization. The service framework encompasses thirty key competencies that can be implemented over the duration of outsourcing initiative. Implementation of the services framework will also bring together skills in areas of program management, service management, vendor management and relationship management.
This book is sweeping and perhaps innovative -- for it introduces an integrated view of core services and process-centric competencies to succeed with outsourcing. It also brings forward a matured competency based method to managing vendor relationships -- more art than science. The information contained in this book, when applied in the context of an organization, will merge several areas of efficiency.
This is an innovative services based approach with practical insights into implementing outsourcing strategy, core capabilities and their strategic alignment with business. It is written for novice as well as experienced buyers and service providers and it guides IT professionals to simplify application of outsourcing in order to improve accountability across outsourcing value chains and to increase benefits. The author provides easy to understand tools, techniques, and best practices to manage outsourcing programs and provider relationships.
It also acts as a guide for providers to position themselves as trusted advisors.
