Benefits to the Participants

Participants will come away from this course with an understanding of outsourcing and the difference between using a contractor to performing activities in-house using company personnel.  The workshop will look at resource realignment.  How much independence can a contractor be allowed and what does “review of results / reports” mean in terms of time and depth of review.  At the end of the two days participants will understand how to initiate a relationship, the role of audit, the role of the quality agreement and ongoing oversight.
