OUTSOURCING PROJECT MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Trends in Outsourcing Project Management Services
Why outsource project management services? Historically, companies outsourced processes primarily as a cost-saving technique. For example, they outsourced basic labour functions to places where employees were cheaper and easier to replace. Today, however, because of continuing advancements and the merging of information technology with other business areas, companies have other reasons to outsource. For important and high-level roles such as project management, an organization typically gains value from outsourcing as opposed to simply cutting costs.
The Various Roles in Project Management
Project management involves more people than just project managers and companies can outsource many project management functions. These include training for project management and support individuals who contribute to the project management team. Additionally, project management roles include individuals responsible for completing the project and individuals responsible for the actual delivery of the project. With outsourcing, coordinating the varied individuals involved with the project management process places additional pressure on organizations, and businesses should make sure all the people involved coordinate and communicate effectively.
Making Big Decisions
Deciding how to outsource project management tasks is complicated for most companies. Before deciding to outsource, the organization must have a clear understanding of what it hopes to accomplish by outsourcing. This includes evaluating the potential benefits and costs associated with hiring project managers outside the company. In some cases, companies may also choose to use outsourced project managers on a temporary basis. In this case, the company must clearly identify the specific functions it wants to outsource and determine how to integrate these functions back into the organization once the company no longer uses the outsourced project managers.
