Development of a Framework for Strategic Outsourcing in Developing Countries

Maaz Ahmed Qureshi, Muhammad Salman, and Rameez Khalid
Abstract—Outsourcing is a phenomenon that has changed the global business scenario. A practically applicable framework has been developed and tested in order to provide a tool for manufacturing industries for making decision regarding outsourcing. The main purpose of this paper is to target those countries where outsourcing manufacturing is still a new concept and provide them with an easy to follow framework. This framework will make the process of decision analysis easier and reliable for them. The proposed framework is a step by step model which by using core competency check, decision matrix, balance score card models and cost equations makes sure that the organization makes the right decision regarding whether a particular activity should be outsourced or not.

Index Terms—Balance score cards, core competency, framework, outsourcing.
