MBA Dissertation written on the theories behind Outsourcing

MBA Dissertation written on the theories behind Outsourcing Ref: busman0005 There is evidence that a firm’s organisational model to maximise the use and benefits from Information Technology (IT) varies across business sectors.  Each model will have an impact on overall organisational effectiveness and the delivery of core competence to the market. A review of two Divisions within of the Co-operative Group suggests that information technology has great potential to improve the financial performance of these Divisions and offer synergies across the Group as a whole. A study of academic and business literature highlights that whilst a number of organisations have insourced their IT delivery and others may adapt total outsourcing, most organisations adopt a selective approach to IT outsourcing. There are risks with both extremes; keeping everything in-house can be expensive and inflexible, while going outside can involve unanticipated overhead costs. Evidence presented shows that cost reduction, efficiency and improved service continue to drive many sourcing initiatives.
