Preparing your business to outsource can be a daunting task. It can be difficult to remember everything you need to do i.e. work out who you need to engage, what type of skills you need and how to get things out of your head to pass them over!

It’s important to do a lot of this thinking before you even get started. Don’t rush into outsourcing, take a moment to think about what you want to achieve. Why are you going into outsourcing in the first place? Is it to take admin tasks off your plate that are taking up your time and preventing you from working on your business, instead of in your business? Is it because you don’t have the expertise In a particular area and you need to source that from someone else?

   So what is outsourcing? Why should I do it and where do I start?

Outsourcing a task can mean engaging a person or a business to do the task for you or it can be as simple as getting someone in your business to do it for you. It really means getting things off your plate and onto someone else’s plate! This can free you up to work on the core of your business – what brings money in the door!

Before you start outsourcing you really need to ask yourself:

  •  What is it you want to get from the outsourcing?
  •  What are the expectations and what is the outcome?
  •  What do you want to get off your plate first?

These are things you should be thinking about before you even start to look for anyone or even identify how you are going to outsource your work. It’s important to know the answers to these questions as they can affect how you go about outsourcing your tasks. For example, if it’s a small, once off job, it’s perfect for outsourcing. You hire someone, they do the job, and everything’s done. You’re not bringing on staff long term that you don’t need, you don’t have to spend time learning skills for something that’s only once off.

But what if it’s something that’s an ongoing task?

Then that may be something you look to be done from a staff member or a long term outsourced partner. Is this a critical skill you need for your business? Or is this more of an administrative task or function that you can pass on to someone else? Allowing you and your staff more time to focus on your business and moving it forward.

These are all questions you should be asking yourself when looking at or thinking about outsourcing, in whatever format you’re planning. So that the time out to think about what it is you want to achieve and how it’s best to achieve it before starting the path to outsourcing, and you’re going to find it’s much more effective for you and your organisation.
