Outsourcing Unit - LSE
The Outsourcing Unit was founded at the LSE to research global issues surrounding outsourcing at the international, governmental and corporate levels. The findings are disseminated through education, advice and publications.
The Outsourcing Unit has 3 aims: the first is to undertake independent research on the trends, the lessons and the practical implications of outsourcing practices. Secondly, through this work, the Unit aims to provide a benchmark of what works and what does not, and so raise the standard of management knowledge in this field. Thirdly, by being retained by individual governments, organizations and corporations, the Unit provides a specialist means of influencing policy, management and practice to help make outsourcing less risky and demonstrably more cost-effective.
