For many small businesses, outsourcing is a means to an end, with the end being the reduction in costs for key business processes. However, outsourcing can be the key to helping your small business grow both financially and organisationally. Let’s find out how you can partner with an outsourcing service provider, like Staff IT UK, that leads to cost reductions whilst simultaneously helping you to build pathways that lead to business growth.
Why Is Outsourcing Good For Growth?
A universal truism is that in business, growth means everything. To be blunt about the role growth plays, “the day your business stops growing is the day your business starts dying.” Growth within small businesses can reduce (or even stop) because entrepreneurs are spending too much time on key business processes instead of focusing on strategic growth and potential avenues of new business opportunity.
The academic literature is very clear on this front. Cohen and Young (2006) noted that when business leaders move beyond in-house process management in favour of offshore outsourced provision, the time and costs saved can lead to improved advantages and improved business growth.
Quinn, in the Sloan Management Review, argued that outsourcing innovation is the new engine for business growth. He argued that companies that outsource get to market quicker than those who ‘in-house’ processes in traditional ways. The improvement in process provision leads to strategic time-in-lieu that business leaders can utilise to help drive new growth potential.
Other academics have found that outsourcing can transform businesses ability to achieve growth by not only cutting costs but by improving organisational focus. What this means, as Linder argued, is that SMEs that outsource create partnerships between outsourced talent and their organisation which leads to greater clarity on how their organisation operates and therein identifies areas that can work better – leading to greater latent growth possibilities.
However, the academic research – whilst useful in identifying trends and themes, fails to fully comprehend the value and benefits of finding the right outsourcing support partner.
