Rick L. Click and Thomas N. Duening provide an informative guide to the basic considerations, risks and methods of business process outsourcing (BPO). You can use this solid handbook to determine if BPO can help your company and to understand what steps to take to implement it successfully, just be aware that it isn’t as focused on environmental and energy costs as the very latest counsel. getAbstract recommends this book to managers and general businesspeople rather than to academics or practitioners. It is a hands-on introduction and overall guide to this approach to major support functions.
In this summary, you will learn
- What business process outsourcing (BPO) is;
- How to tell if it is right for your company;
- How to select the right BPO vendor; and
