International Outsourcing
Outsourcing is the contracting of the management and/or execution of a business function to an outside third-party contractor or subcontractor. Outsourcing typically refers to the contracting of services to an offshore, rather than domestic, company. While outsourcing has been an accepted business practice for hundreds of years, it has recently become a key component in the success of many domestic and international firms.  In the modern world, businesses will define what they do best, organize the whole and outsource the rest.
