Outsourcing for Accountants
Outsourcing can mean many things but the simplest explanation is that outsourcing is asking another company to do a job or perform a service that your company could do, but for some reason, chooses not to do.
The main driver for outsourcing is normally cost; to decrease the cost of production of goods or decrease the cost of providing a service.
Outsourcing helps the learner discover the real benefits and problems of outsourcing, and helps them decide if it will work for them.
Outsourcing is part of our Issues and Debates suite of learning. Issues and Debates courses stimulate intelligent dialogue and debate and provide a valuable and evolving resource of professional knowledge and experience. These courses are topical, practical and highly relevant to today’s changing market. Each module is split into two activities: Understanding the issues and Putting it into practice.
