Summary The research has uncovered a major reason for outsourcing in this sector as a desire to improve middle management, specifically their skill levels and familiarity with new operating procedures. Outsourcing negative outcomes were the result of decision-makers not considering the length of relationships between parties and the lack of information available to monitor quality and other contractual terms. Outsourcing has been performed for various reasons, but rarely have decision-makers considered the full range of factors that may potentially affect the optimal nature of the decision, or the organisational characteristics of their workplaces.
