About the Seminar:

Believe it or not, outsourcing is unavoidable. Every company has outsourced certain functions to other professional bodies. For example, most Hong Kong companies use Hong Kong Post to mail correspondence - this is already a kind of outsourcing..

- What are the true pros and cons of outsourcing?

- What does "non-core functions" really mean? How to identify them?

- How could the feeling of "remoteness" be reduced and managed?

- How do nature, size and structure of business affect outsourcing?

- How to correctly calculate the amount of cost saving and value added?

- & more....

In this seminar, Mr Jones Wong will take you through the 3 phases of outsourcing: I) Initial Assessment, II) Implementation & Monitoring, and III) Evaluation (to expand or reduce) with a focus on Phase I.

Accounting & Payment Process, Debt Collection, Payroll & HR, Invoicing, Marketing, Cleaning, Manufacturing Spare Parts... are all common functions outsourced by many companies. But do you need to outsource them too? May be or may be not. This seminar will equip you with practical tools so that you could measure pros and cons and find a right and unique solution for your business.
