There are many reasons organizations pursue a selective outsourcing strategy, including cost management, and the ability to access skill sets not possessed by staff members. Done properly, selective outsourcing can create a competitive differentiation by allowing an organization to take advantage of the knowledge and services offered by a third-party provider.
