The booming pace of outsourcing witnessed in the last decades appears to be slowing as manufacturers factor metrics like total cost of ownership into their outsourcing decisions. In cases, some are not only holding back on outsourcing and offshoring but are even pulling these back in-house.
This tells only part of the story. Outsourcing is a complex subject and the decisions associated with it are equally complicated. Yet, it is a mission-critical operational strategy that manufacturers must get right. To help manufacturers get a good handle on the current outsourcing situation, Avnet and EBN will present a webinar titled "Is Outsourcing Dead" on February 19th 2013. Wade McDaniel, VP of solutions architecture at Avnet Velocity offers insights and best practices on the subject of outsourcing in a changing global market. He will focus on the following questions:
