My friends and I love Grand Designs! I don’t really know why but we always seem to be talking about it. Last week, for instance; instead of talking about the weekends big rugby game, we were talking about one of the creations made on the show. Last night was no different. In my WhatsApp group, one of my friends mentioned how a Japanese style home was built in the Wye Valley. A classic east meets west encounter, I had to watch.
Here are a few personal observations on IT Outsourcing based on my experience of both selling and working in and around major outsource contracts in the IT industry.

No matter how extensive, the use of third parties to simply augment internal resources is not, in my view, outsourcing.
