|Title:||Discovering strategic lessons for 'surfing' the outsourcing wave and avoiding the 'wipe-outs'||Contributor(s):||Hunter, JD (author); Cooksey, RW (author)||Publication Date:||2003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1008||Abstract:||The last two decades have seen an unprecedented growth in the use of outsourcing interventions in diverseorganisational contexts, as a means of 'unbundling' the vertically integrated activities of organisationsdriven by evolving strategic 'wisdoms' that focus upon value-creating activities that underpin sustainablecompetitive advantage. This paper explores the delicate balance between more conventional strategicmotives and the more complex, emergent and interconnected behavioural impacts and considerations inthe context of an outsourcing decision in a specific case study organisation. By drawing upon theidiosyncratic experiences reported by particular groups of individuals involved in, or affected by, anoutsourcing decision, we note some important lessons that may inform the pursuit of such decisions in thefuture.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||2003 Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM), Fremantle, 2-5 December, 2003||Conference Details:||2003 Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM), Fremantle, 2-5 December, 2003||Source of Publication:||Surfing the Waves: Management Challenges, Management Solutions - Proceedings of the 17th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM), p. 1-10||Publisher:||Edith Cowan University||Place of Publication:||Fremantle||Field of Research (FOR):||150312 Organisational Planning and Management||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.anzam.org/
