  • “Can you outsource a business function whose processes are broken, or do you need to fix it first and then outsource?”
  • “How does an outsourcing arrangement impact our relationship with unions?”
  • “We have projects going all the time; how do you juggle all those projects and introduce outsourcing without the disruption?”
