We all know about outsourcing…  the obtaining of (goods or a service) from an outside supplier, esp. in place of an internal source.  Socius Business Advisors “insourcing” program puts senior experience leaders inside your company on a regular part time basis.  You get the best of both worlds. You get the expertise and know how of one of our experienced advisors, or senior advisors, for the cost of a mid level associate. “Insourced” assignments are a minimum of a six (6) months with a minimum of 40 hours per month.

business teamTypically, highly effective companies/organizations/environments focus on their core expertise. They outsource, in a variety of ways, critical job functions that are not their core talent. The rational is to focus on doing what you do best and engage partners to do what they do best, as much as possible.

Companies that try to do it all typically achieve less than optimum results. The same goes for those that outsource critical talent that they need to possess for business success. In some cases, this becomes a significant risk for the company.  That’s where Socius Business Advisors “Insourcing Leadership” comes in.  We can add an experienced collaborative leader to your team to add the expertise you need .  Your get C-level leadership, at a fraction of the cost (normally between 1/5 – 1/3)  of hiring a C level individual.

Here’s an exercise that can help. Take out four sheets of paper. At the top of each sheet, write one of the following questions:

  • What business are you really in?
  • What is the core expertise or talent on which your business is built?
  • To maximize your core expertise/talent/business results, what other closely related talents do you need to maintain at peak performance?
  • What other expertise/talents/critical functions are needed to maximize your results but can also be accomplished by partners?
