Studies have found that more than half of all organizations spend two percent or less of an outsourcing contract’s cost on governance. However, more than 60 percent report losing 10 percent or more of the contract’s value because of poor governance between the customer and the provider. Given this, professionals involved in outsourcing clearly have an important role to play in helping their organizations plan, invest in, and execute a cohesive set of business practices for designing and implementing a strong governance program.
