Outsourcing is a hot topic in the business press, but it’s hardly new. A key methodology in today’s business world, business process outsourcing (BPO) lets companies take full advantage of the realities of globalization by exporting certain business processes to outside providers who can do it cheaper, faster, or better. The benefits of BPO in terms of cost and competition are obvious, but it’s also an effective way for companies to focus more on their core competencies. Outsourcing peripheral functions lets companies concentrate on what they do best.

Many functions can be and are regularly outsourced, such as payroll and benefits, customer service, call centers, technical support, and even manufacturing, but BPO is much more than the movement of jobs from one place to another. Like other business methodologies such as Six Sigma, BPO is a process that must be undertaken carefully and judiciously to produce maximum benefit for businesses.

This book presents a step-by-step approach to understanding the proper application of BPO, assessing the BPO opportunities within an organization, and managing the initiative effectively. Covering more than just the nuts and bolts of BPO, this comprehensive resource also examines the vital, real-world issues of BPO’s effect on employees and interoffice relationships–helping managers control the pace of change and balance the interests of employees and shareholders. Regardless of the processes involved or the revolutionary nature of modern business, all organizations are built on human beings, and managing human relationships in times of change is a task for which all managers must be prepared. Covering not only practical business considerations but ethical ones as well, this is an indispensable source of information that businesses large and small won’t want to do without.
