Outsourcing?

Yesterday evening, I was invited by KPMG to join a discussion on shared service centers, nearshoring, offshoring and outsourcing. The seminar took place in the Royal Hilton Hotel Soestduinen. The outcome of the seminar was not surprising. "Be carefull with big-bang outsourcing", "make sure to have a bullet proof business case".. To my knowledge it is advisable to insource the outsourcing partner a year before you want to give away your processes.
