"Can you say outsourcing?
If you're not outsourcing, you're not part of the "in" crowd. Outsourcing,
the term for sending a business function to an outside firm, seems to be
getting as trendy as the Internet, according to a year-long international
study by Arthur Andersen and The Economist Intelligence Unit. The study
finds that 93 percent of the corporations surveyed plan to outsource in the
next three years and the nine out of ten who now outsource are satisfied with
the results. The study was based on interviews with 50 global organizations
plus a survey of 303 senior executives throughout North American and Europe."
