Offshore outsourcing can reduce operating expenses, decrease time to market, and provide access to a flexible workforce or hard-to-find skills. To get the most from your outsourced project, you need to know how outsourcing works - what it can do, what it can't do, and what you can expect from it.

Outsource It! tells you how to estimate your potential savings, how to figure out what, how, and where to go - and how to find that vendor magic. You'll learn how to use metrics, reduce turnover, and perform technical due diligence. And you'll never miss a beat, because the checklists will keep you and your project on track.
