Must outsourcing be done when your business is struggling, or is it better to outsource when you are seeking to expand and grow your business?
Outsourcing can be a daunting prospect. There is usually some trepidation involved. Business owners may not instantly make the outsourcing jump because they’re unsure what’s on the other side. They’re not completely sure what impact it will have on their business or how it might work.
Some see outsourcing as a better way to conduct their business as it helps them to become more efficient. There’s a certain thrill in trying something new in the business — something that others may have not done before that gives you a competitive edge.
The bigger the business, the bigger the opportunity is for you to outsource. But that’s not to say that a smaller business won’t benefit from outsourcing. For smaller businesses, it’s important to stay focused on the processes that grow your business as opposed to the many and varied smaller tasks that may be dragging you away from accomplishing your business goals. If you’re not familiar with your own processes, then outsourcing can become a real challenge. Just wrapping your mind around this can be difficult, especially when you’re thinking about the prospect of training staff in another country, while also keeping your business running.
In order for your business to grow and become more profitable, you will need to have a clear idea as to how outsourcing works and what outcome you want to attain. It’s important for your onshore team, who likely have many years of experience working with you, to buy into your reasons for wanting to outsource. It may be worthwhile explaining to your onshore team members that offshoring the simple and repetitive tasks are going to help them remain completely focused on their core duties. You’re taking away the noise so that they can focus on the growth levers in your business.
