Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Progressive companies and University programs have recently begun to rethink outsourcing models. In Vested Outsourcing, thought-leader Kate Vitasek has created a model that will improve outsourcing procedures much the way Six Sigma and Lean improved production processes in the 80's and 90's. Based on a research study with the University of Tennessee and the United States Air force, Vitasek has identified the top 10 flaws in most outsourced business models and then shows organizations how to rethink their outsourcing relationships in a way that will lower costs, improve service and increase innovation. In Vested Outsourcing, Vitasek shows both professors and managers the five rules to developing a successful outsourcing plan, setting the stage for organizations to create a true vested partnership.
