Project Outsourcing

If you want help but can’t afford, or don’t need, full-time expertise, consider outsourcing projects or ongoing aspects of your business. However, make sure you:

  • Define the scope of the job to give you a more accurate idea of how much the job should cost;
  • Spell out liability arrangements so if something goes wrong, you know the extent to which either party is liable;
  • Factor in intellectual property and have IP assigned to you so you own it outright;
  • Identify key performance indicators so both parties agree on how work standards will be measured; and
  • Know how to end it to allow either party to exit the agreement.
