Product description


'Leslie Willcocks has been a reliable guide to the latest outsourcing fashions for years. Here he and his colleagues are once again ahead of the curve in showing how sophisticated outsourcers are building collaborations and adding value, not just cutting costs. With examples from Machiavelli to leading edge IT businesses the Outsourcing Enterprise is an entertaining and practical guide to best practices.' - Sir Howard Davies, Director, London School of Economics and Political Science

'An invaluable guide to professional practice. The book is carefully throught through and well illustrated with myriad examples from USA, Europe and Asia Pacific. As a CIO who has been and is still working in multiple industries and countries I only know too well precisely what the authors are describing and recognize from my own experience the value of their work in systematizing and distilling the practices that make the difference. This book should be on every outsourcing professional's desk.' - Peter Mahler, CIO Axa Australia, and formerly Coles Myer and Belgacom

'Frustrated by the sense that you're failing to cash in on the opportunities that outsourcing presents? This book's for you! Directive, insightful, and easy to read, the authors have leveraged their enormous research base to explain how smart companies can create real business advantage from strategic outsourcing.' - Dr. Jeanne W. Ross, Director, MIT Center for Information Systems Research, MIT Sloan School of Management

'With two-thirds of our members telling us that senior executives are more involved in outsourcing decisions than ever before, the timing of Leslie's book could not be better. Here he and colleagues…show how outsourcing can produce great results, but only when outsourcing professionals ensure great execution.' - Michael F. Corbett, Chairman, International Association of Outsourcing Professionals

'Based on the learning from some 2500 practitioners, this book is an excellent source for CEOs, strategists, or anyone that needs to understand the drivers and issue of outsourcing, especially global outsourcing, and how to use these opportunities to propel their business forward. The UK's National Outsourcing Association (part of the European Outsourcing Association) fully endorses this book's central theme that outsourcing has now moved firmly to the strategic corporate agenda…. It would.. be very useful to those considering or taking qualifications in outsourcing such as the NOA's degree or Masters Pathway courses.' - Martyn Hart, Chairman, National Outsourcing Association

'If you are looking for a blueprint for understanding how to leverage external services, this book is required reading. IT and business executives, consultants, and academics alike will find it invaluable…. Fundamental to attaining your strategic external services objectives is active engagement by the appropriate senior business executives. Demonstrating why and exactly how they should care is the decisive contribution made by this book.' - Jerry Luftman, Executive Director & Distinguished Professor, Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey, USA
