Alsbridge: Balancing the Risk and Reward of Outsourcing Contracts

Benefits in one area can negatively affect other parts of outsourcing contracts, Alsbridge says.

In a recent white paper, Alsbridge examines the risks and rewards of outsourcing information technology (IT) contracts. For some companies, the decision is based primarily on cost. But depending on individual circumstances, strategies will vary.

The optimal outsourcing arrangement may not necessarily be the least expensive. A company's top goal should be to develop an agreement that meets the business's needs throughout the contract term. The paper describes characteristics of a sound outsourcing contract.

Remember that returns in one area can negatively affect other parts of the agreement. Alsbridge's guidelines help businesses align outsourcing contracts with strategies and requirements.
