Outsourcing for mutual success

Comment
The Vested Outsourcing Manual: A Guide for Creating Successful Business and Outsourcing Agreements outlines a methodology for creating an outsourcing agreement in which both parties are mutually invested in a successful outcome.

The new book The Vested Outsourcing Manual: A Guide for Creating Successful Business and Outsourcing Agreements outlines a methodology for creating an outsourcing agreement in which both parties are mutually invested in a successful outcome.

Kate Vitasek, a faculty member at the University of Tennessee's Center for Executive Education, wrote the book together with co-authors Jeanette Nyden, Jacqueline Crawford, and Katherine Kawamoto. The Vested Outsourcing Manual draws on research conducted by the University of Tennessee with the United States Air Force on supply chain outsourcing and acts as a companion piece to Vitasek's earlier work, Vested Outsourcing: Five Rules That Will Transform Outsourcing.

The methodology described in the book provides a template that parties in an outsourcing arrangement can use to help them create and achieve a shared vision based on true collaboration and mutual gain. It also explains ways companies can share their evolving expertise, manage change, and encourage each other to innovate while managing risk.

Published by Palgrave Macmillan, the hardcover edition of The Vested Outsourcing Manual: A Guide for Creating Successful Business and Outsourcing Agreements sells for US $85.00.
