The Avengers are not just mighty superheroes of the universe, they are also knowledgeable of good outsourcing. Learn of their ways in this article.
By now, the business world has come to realize what a great strategy outsourcing is. Traditionally pursued to save costs, outsourcing provides other benefits to companies such as increasing productivity and allowing more time to focus on growing their businesses which help them in achieving their long-term goals.
It seems like anyone who’s anyone knows a thing or two about outsourcing, even superheroes. Take the Mighty Avengers, they’re known to to take on evildoers of earth or anywhere in the galaxy, for truth, justice and good of all. If you look closer, you’ll see that they demonstrate qualities of good outsourcing.
Here are 5 ways that show the Avengers know about outsourcing:
1. They Have Amazing Leadership
Be it Iron Man (Tony Stark) or Captain America (Steve Rogers) at the helm, they make sure that through their leadership challenges are managed effectively and conflicts are resolved. As leaders, they know who they are and what they stand for. They know their values and the rules they will abide by, regardless of the circumstances they face. And when a mission calls for additional teammates so it could be accomplished successfully, they know how to find, recruit and weed out the best superhero for the mission.
In outsourcing, much can be accomplished with amazing leadership. It’s the driving fuel for the team to excel, it gives helps boost the team’s confidence to overcome any challenge, and more importantly, it holds the team together like glue.
2. They Don’t Multitask
You’ve seen Ironman create a new element, Captain America knock out a bunch of henchmen, and Hulk, well, SMASH. Notice a pattern here? They only do one task at a time. Doing one thing at a time helps them to keep focused, thus, performing better and ensuring the goal is achieved.
One of the reasons companies outsource is because they don’t want to multitask. They delegate tasks because multitasking kills their productivity. Yes, an outsourced staff can do multiple tasks at a time though service providers know better. They’d rather have them perform one task exceptionally well than have a bunch of tasks completed but not at par with standards.
3. They Make Their Objectives as Clear as Possible
The Avengers don’t just bulldoze their way against their enemies because they can, especially with Hulk and Thor around. You’ll see the team strategize, set out clear, measurable and realistic objectives. With it, they know where they’re going and how they plan to get there, be it closing a wormhole or evacuating a whole city.
For outsourcing to be successful, defined objectives and measurable goals are important. If objectives are not clearly defined, it can lead to higher costs, wasted resources, and lost business opportunities. As for measurable goals, they are the metrics to monitor progress, take corrective action, and project future performance.
4. They Train Hard
The Avengers don’t just sit around all day at the Avengers Tower, they train too (though Hulk not so much). In fact, they even built a New Avengers Facility to be used for military training, weapon development and training of the new incarnation of the Avengers and their recruits. The main point here is they want to get better at what they do.
Outsourcing companies provide the best data entry specialists, content writers, designers, accountants and other professionals. Although they’re already good at what they do, the outsourcing companies help them improve their craft through seminars and workshops. Their improvement means they’ll be able to handle a huge variety of work from clients.
5. They Communicate
From their ingenious plans to what’s for dinner, the Avengers pretty much talk about everything. This is probably the best thing about the Avengers, they never hesitate to speak their mind, even if it can lead to getting punched in the face. They must know that communication is key to teamwork.
In outsourcing communication is vital, either client to service provider or client to outsourced staff. Talking things through allows better understanding of the objectives, roles and most importantly develops trust.
Outsourcing and the Avengers might be of different worlds, one is a business strategy and the other is a group of fictional characters, but they both emphasize on the value of teamwork. With it, success can be accomplished faster and easier.
