International Sourcing

Sourcing is the contracting of the management and/or execution of a business function to an outside third-party contractor or subcontractor. Outsourcing typically refers to the contracting of services to an offshore, rather than domestic, company. While outsourcing has been an accepted business practice for hundreds of years, it has recently become a key component in the success of many domestic and international firms. In the modern world, businesses will define what they do best, organize the whole and outsource the rest.

Guide to International Sourcing

The World Trade Press ‘Guide to International Sourcing’ provides a comprehensive primer on how outsourcing works, gives definitions and examples of typical forms of outsourcing, and establishes distinctions between the different types. It includes a provocative essay on the future of outsourcing, challenges and issues, country issues, vendor selection, data security, intellectual property rights, project management, pricing models, billing models, payment options, negotiating relationships, contractual framework (with contract checklist), profiles of five outsourcing powerhouses, and information sources for outsourcing.
