When does Outsourcing fit right in?

Posted By Sheryl Pass, Project Improvement Experts, Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Businesses eventually get to the crossroad where a business system, or a business process is no longer viable. Perhaps your software Vendor says the version you are using will no longer be supported – you must upgrade or risk a system failure.  Maybe your suppliers (or customers) insist that your purchase order/invoicing can longer be mailed or faxed – but must be sent electronically.

Your Vendors will provide resources to install software, and provide training but they generally have little influence over your Team. Your Team will have tasks to do, perhaps reviewing configuration options or updating internal processes brought about by system changes. And you need to consider how your employees will not only accept the changes, but champion them.

Wow! That’s a lot of work – do you have someone on staff with the time & skills to lead your company through these changes?

Outsourcing, or hiring a Project Manager “on demand” can be an effective solution.  When you hire a Project Management Consultant for a specific project or initiative – the associated costs are direct costs and can be easily included in a cost benefit analysis.  While hourly rate may be higher, ancillary employee costs like insurance, vacation time, and payroll taxes are not applicable.

Project Management Consultants are experts in facilitating Team discussions, and keeping people on task to deliver as promised. Having broad experiences across many industries, your Project Manager will bring fresh perspectives to the table, avoiding pitfalls they have seen with other clients.

Most recently coined Project Management as a Service (PMaaS) – outsourcing on a project by project basis will allow you to access experts, while easily scaling your Team to meet the extra demands.
