The purpose of this study is to understand the motives behind outsourcing as it is becoming inevitable for reasons like cost reduction, operational efficiencies, etc. Further, the study investigates the pitfalls of outsourcing as well. The information for this investigation includes a few specific cases of various companies that are outsourcing their project management services. The information is collected from various papers, annual reports and relevant journals. The reasons motivating organizations to outsource are also changing permanently, with companies increasingly outsourcing to achieve customer-centricity and unlock new technological capabilities, rather than simply to cut costs. This study analyzes factors that are expected to make outsourcing market more competitive and collaborative as both buyers and service providers are heavily in favor of basing contracts on outcomes rather than outputs, choosing to share risk to reap greater rewards.
