Key Components Of A Successful Outsourcer

Selecting an outsourcer to assist the IS organization in moving up the CMM is different from selecting an outsourcer strictly for assuming responsibility for a given function. The outsourcing project must be performed on site, and it requires an outsourcer with the experience and desire to share its methods. These requirements preclude offshore outsourcing organizations. Some outsourcers will consider their practices proprietary and will be unwilling to transfer knowledge to the IS organization. The IS organization must find an outsourcer that is willing and able to provide its procedures and the required training.
