In short, the out-sourcing enables an organization to accelerate its growth and success by investing in areas where there is a clear competitive advantage.

-In most cases, the provider has extensive experience in a certain area gained through the years and a unique knowledge of the market for a company is difficult to achieve by simple training or hiring of personnel.

3. Accelerate the benefits of re-engineering. The out-sourcing is generally a byproduct of another powerful management tool: the re-engineering. This is because it allows an organization to immediately make the changes involved in restructuring, by having an outside company (or individual specialist) to take charge of a particular process.

4. Risk Division. There are many risks associated with dramatic investment made by an organization. When companies resort to out-sourcing, become more flexible, dynamic and are more apt to change.

Having access to the low costs of external supplier (a result of economies of scale or other advantages based on specialization) is clearly one of the strongest reasons for adopting the out-sourcing. In addition, many companies trying to do everything themselves, incur expenditure on research, development or marketing very high, which the consumer of today is not willing to accept.9. Resources are not available. Many companies resort to out-sourcing because they lack access to resources within your organization.
