Quick question, have you and I met?  Likely not as I travel a lot and unless we’ve met while I was in Nashville, it’s likely we haven’t had any face time.  With that thought, rather than tell you more of what I think about outsourcing  (I love it), I thought you might enjoy these quotes from several leaders in the outsourcing community.  Enjoy.

“Outsourcing is inevitable, and I don’t think it’s necessarily treating people like things.”

~ Stephen Covey

“The important thing about outsourcing or global sourcing is that it becomes a very powerful tool to leverage talent, improve productivity and reduce work cycles.”

~ Azim Premji

“The other part of outsourcing is this: it simply says where the work can be done outside better than it can be done inside, we should do it.”

~ Alphonso Jackson

“And just remember, every dollar we spend on outsourcing is spent on U.S. goods or invested back in the U.S. market. That’s accounting.”

~ Arthur Laffer

“In the long run, outsourcing is another form of trade that benefits the U.S. economy by giving us cheaper ways to do things.”

~ Janet Yellen

“If you deprive yourself of outsourcing and your competitors do not, you’re putting yourself out of business.”

~ Lee Kuan Yew

“Outsourcing American jobs will prove to be a plus for the economy in the long run. It’s simply a new way of doing international trade.”

~ Greg Mankiw

“Outsourcing and globalization of manufacturing allows companies to reduce costs, benefits consumers with lower cost goods and services, causes economic expansion that reduces unemployment, and increases productivity and job creation.”

~ Larry Elder

“Outsourcing was the bogeyman of the ’90s. Protectionists portrayed it as an evil that would take American jobs away. Yes, some jobs did go offshore as people feared, but it made the global economic pie grow bigger.”

~ Vivek Wadhwa

“India’s great economic boom, the arrival of the Internet and outsourcing, have broken the wall between provincial India and the world.”

~ Aravind Adiga

Hope you enjoyed reading those quotes, they prove that a lot of very smart people know that outsourcing is hear to stay.  If you’d like to learn more, maybe even give a quote of your own, please get in touch and let’s chat.  We never charge for thiese sessions, just a friendly and informed chat about outsourcing to the Philippines.
