In this short video, Paul Miller, a Partner within IBM Global Business Services, discusses the key reasons why organisations look externally to IT service providers to support implementation of their strategy. As a C-Suite Specialist, I find Paul’s commentary to closely mirror conversations that my clients & I have been having recently as we jointly explore their priorities for the year ahead. Put simply, I am witnessing a trend whereby it is clear that although historically outsourcing as a business strategy was seen as a cost-cutting exercise, many organisations are now embracing outsourcing as a means through which they can transform their business. Paul outlines 4 key reasons why today’s organisations are incorporating outsourcing as part of their business strategy, namely; Access to Capability, Flexibility, Efficiency and Execute Transformation. I’d encourage you to watch the video to listen to Paul’s perspectives for yourself.
