Today we focus on right sourcing, which has seen tremendous growth in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, with many companies forced to restructure and re-evaluate their position on looking outside their organisation to help get things done. At eTestware we believe in working together with our clients in a collaborative fashion where our experts join forces with yours to maximise efficiencies across the board – for us, right sourcing has always been the best approach to take…
What is right sourcing?
In essence, right sourcing lives up to its name by being the practice of seeking the right source to complete the service/s required. In 2020 it has perhaps become more important than ever before, with various challenges to internal workforces needing to be overcome whilst businesses try to ‘carry on as normal’ – an unenviable task in itself.
In many cases in the past, the decision to bring a third party on board was based solely upon saving money, but nowadays it is one that must be made after even more careful consideration.
Now you must ask yourself if you can successfully complete a business task in-house, or if it would be more beneficial to opt for outside help whilst simultaneously redeploying your own resource?
This type of question has certainly been a part of the outsourcing process in the past but it is now more important than ever before, and has always been a key factor for us here on theICEway – after all, as a business owner you would definitely want your own teams to be centred on their core activities whilst our experts reinforce and support those efforts.
Right sourcing takes outsourcing to the next level by doing exactly that; it combines the talents of your internal workforce with those of our qualified professionals, who can also bring an outsider’s perspective to the table whilst having a solid appreciation for your business objectives.
One way of looking at it would be to use a footballing analogy; let’s imagine you were a manager of a team with a very good, albeit very raw and young, prospect playing in goal. If you wanted to challenge for the league title, you would need to ask yourself whether or not this talent was up to the task, or if bringing in a more experienced and established goalkeeper might be a more sensible option. Your future shot-stopper could then continue as back-up by playing in the cup competitions to learn, all the while also picking up tips from the new number one – the best of both worlds!
In that analogy your business is the football team and we at eTestware are the experienced goalkeeper; put us in between the sticks and we’ll provide you with a safe pair of hands as you develop the potential of your own players…
