As more and more business firms are considering outsourcing, this does not mean that you should go with the flow and join the bandwagon right away. Before you consider outsourcing for your business, it is appropriate and inevitable for you to ask whether you are all set for it or not. Also, if you do consider outsourcing, make sure that you know which specific functions only should you outsource. While outsourcing could be a very good move and could pay off well, outsourcing can still be risky.


Consider the present condition of your business. Your company’s needs, functions, limits, baseline costs, to name a few, are the things you should consider when trying to determine if you are prepared for taking another step.


Jenniffer Zaino noted eight signs which can indicate that your company is not yet geared up for outsourcing. You know you’re not all set yet for outsourcing if:

2. You don't have any plans for managing the relationship on an ongoing basis
3. You don't have your own house in order.
4. You can't compromise on customization.
5. You can't wait - literally - to get to market.
6. Your organizational culture is more about confrontation than collaboration.

7. You won't be ready to move forward aggressively on your plans.
8. Your expectations about cost-savings are unrealistic.
7. You won't be ready to move forward aggressively on your plans.
