Surviving outsourcing

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book is a widely popular selection of practical hints and tips on how to solve real problems and make the most out of Outsourcing. Presented in a unique comic strip format it shows how a fictitious company Schreuder uses Outsourcing to resolve a wide range of business problems.

Schreuder was founded in 1890 and is now a global, fast moving Consumer Goods company quoted at the Dow Jones and FTSE 100. Headquartered in London, the company operates in over 80 countries, across five continents and employs over 75,000 professionals. The profits are not meeting expectations and as a result, Jones has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer, to bring Schreuder back on track.

Follow Jones as he uses Outsourcing techniques to turn around the company, meet his colleagues as they struggle to change processes, watch the successes and failures of initiatives and ideas.

This title is a Case Study like no other: short, sharp and with practical lessons that readers will identify with, it provides hard-hitting examples to show how you can unlock the full potential of outsourcing programmes.
