Successful outsourcing doesn’t just mean selecting the right service provider; you also need an effective Stay Back Team (SBT) in place. The SBT is the cornerstone of any outsourcing initiative and is an important link between your corporation’s business and the service provider, not only from the onset of the RFP process and ensuing re-organization when the contract is awarded, but also for ongoing management of the services.
Building a career means more than simply doing a good job for your employer. It also means getting involved in associations that represent your industry. Associations can bring a great deal of value to your career and your job, ultimately benefiting your employer at the same time.
An association like IFMA can add a great deal of value both to your personal career and to the job you do. The key is to become an active member.
