More and more teams these days are virtual or a blend of full-time employees, part-time staff, and contractors spread out across the globe. The way we work today is drastically different than it was in the past, and outsourcing is something that’s become more and more a part of the modern business organization. Derek Gallimore joins me to shed some light on outsourcing, particularly as a complement to innovation.

 

Derek is the Founder of Outsource Accelerator, which as the 'Alibaba of outsourcing,' provides a gateway for businesses to connect with outsourcing suppliers. It lists about 700 outsourcing suppliers, and a wealth of other resources around outsourcing, including the Outsource Accelerator Podcast hosted by Derek. As a firm believer that outsourcing is one of the most potent and transformative business tools available today, Derek explains how it expands your talent pool to a more diverse workforce, and allows for a different type of collaboration and innovation.

 

In a globalized world with a globalized workforce, why should you limit yourself to just your geographic locale to find the right, qualified people you need? Derek explains why outsourcing can be transformative for your company, and some of the upsides and downsides to leading a team that is outsourced. We also dive into the importance of treating your outsourced talent as members of your team and how to integrate them into the culture of your company. Derek also shares some insights into which jobs to outsource and the best practices around including the outsourced team in the innovation process, although they are virtual. Building an international team with outsourced staff can actually help create a more solid foundation from which creativity and innovation can thrive and scale — curious how that works? Derek has the answers.
