This paper sets out as managers’ guideline into making the right outsourcing decisions. The research explores those activities critical to the success of an outsourcing project. This is achieved through a comprehensive literature study around the four phases of outsourcing; the decision making phase, selection and negotiation phase, the transition phase and the management phase. The project further investigates how well these activities are implemented in South African industries.
