Continually adapt to the demands of the business with Micro-Sourcing

We know from experience that the needs of the business will change and that the business will always demand more (efficiency) for less money (effectiveness). After all, isn’t that why outsourcing started and why it continues to be a key digital transformation lever across all functions and industries? Micro-Sourcing is a modern hybrid outsourcing strategy which contracts for multiple delivery models, allowing you to continually adapt to the demands of the business regardless of how the market changes. Granted, there is complexity in contracting for multiple delivery models and then allowing product owners to choose which delivery model to use. However, that complexity is required to enjoy flexibility and realize value. Micro-Sourcing manages the complexity by predefining the delivery models, the “micro,” within third-party contracts, the “sourcing,” which allows you to manage risk, deliver performance at the right price, and allow the product owner to select the right model at the right time. The next innovation in the market will possibly require integration of all of your services into your outsourcing strategy. With Micro-Sourcing, you can have confidence that your outsourcing delivery models are able to adapt to disruption and market innovations.
