How to Manage Outsourced Projects
In the past many corporations would downsize when the economy turned downward, and
upsize when the economy improved. Recently, however, some are choosing to remain lean
by opting not to upsize when economic conditions become favorable. This has the benefit
of focusing their strategic energies on their core competencies. But how do they make
up for the additional resources needed to keep up with market demands? The answer is
outsourcing, or procurement management.
Outsourcing is directed toward a corporation’s non-essential capabilities while it
maintains a close focus on what makes them strong in commercial and government worlds.
This new approach presents a rising demand for project managers who have strong, proven
project procurement skills.
This how-to guide, provided by project management expert Michael Taylor, gives
managers practical methods for handling challenging projects.
