In "Guarding the Pipeline," Outsourcing Pipeline author Jill Gambon examines the security issues of offshoring.
The practical advice offered is pretty generic to outsourcing:
- Do what you can to limit your "exposure to the risks of dealing with foreign legal systems when entering into an outsourcing engagement" by insisting that legal disputes be resolved in the US.
- Also, start small, if you're new to outsourcing. "Dip a toe in the water."
- And develop a thorough RFP "that carefully spells out requirements."
