Our report first discusses the history of outsourcing, the economic theories, some important political turning points and the fundamental reasons companies outsource. We reviewed the prevalence of outsourcing and employment as well as the relationship between outsourcing and quality. Profiles of well known global companies in various business sectors that have chosen to outsource, such as Boeing and Xerox, were also analyzed.

We discuss why outsourcing is such an important business strategy for well run companies that must stay competitive in a global environment if they want to survive.
