What is OP?

Outsourcing Performance is the annual comparative study of the quality of the relationships between client organizations (outsourcers) and their external service providers. The annual Outsourcing Performance benchmark study was launched in 2002. OP measures the perception on the client side of the market, among the senior management such as CIOs and vendor managers. Service providers need information about the opinion of client organizations to improve themselves and the relationship with the client. Clients can also learn from OP best practices and cases. Giarte, in continuation of the research and analyses, supports both clients and providers who wish to elevate their cooperation to a higher level.
