Fort Washington, PA (PRWEB) May 30, 2012
Today, Blumberg Advisory Group with over forty years of benchmark data and industry best practices experience in the High-Tech service industry announced the release of a new e-book titled "Strategic Assessment of Outsourcing & Downsizing in the Service Market." The e-book is now available for download on its website (http://www.blumberg-advisor.com/outsourcing-assessment-e-book).
On the release of this e-book Michael R. Blumberg, president said, “Our objective is to provide insight into the decision making process that should be utilized in considering Aftermarket Services outsourcing options. We outline the key steps and decision paradigms and parameters which can help support the decision making process to outsource from the perspective of both the outsourcing firm and outsourcing vendors.”
A significant number of articles and books exist on the subject of service outsourcing and downsizing, stressing not only the values, but also the processes that have been used, in terms of anecdotal situations. In general, an underlying assumption is made in almost all of these publications is that outsourcing can, by itself, reduce costs of service and/or improve efficiency.
In almost all of this analysis and presentation, very little is mentioned with respect to the mechanisms, which internal or external consultants should and could use for deciding on outsourcing versus alternatives. Moreover, even less on how to provide a qualitative and quantitative process and procedure for determining the optimum strategic solution, given the significantly growing costs of service and the opportunity of outsourcing and downsizing.
This e-book covers the strategic management process that details the steps required to arrive at a proper decision and outcome for Aftermarket Services firms.
