Evaluating whether or not to outsource your company’s project management and controls functions can be challenging. Before making this leap, you have to assess if this is a good move for your business and more importantly who to partner with to address these challenges. Below are some common motivators and benefits for implementing an outsourcing strategy.

Highly Skilled Staff

Your internal staff may not have the specific project management experience and/or training you need to effectively take a project from inception to closeout. Project management is a highly specialized area that requires significant attention to detail, as well as the ability to see the broader scope to ensure strategic business alignment.


External resources often bring a level of objectivity that may not always be present with internal staff, for various reasons. This objectivity can be of great value when it comes to the actual project outcomes and deliverables, and ensuring all business requirements are met.

Enhanced Talent Aquisition

By outsourcing your project management and controls services you eliminate the burden associated with acquiring top talent. A specialized company can readily supply the necessary resources as they are industry experts in the field. This in turn minimizes talent acquisition cost and duration, while boosting the quality and level of service required.

Supplement Staffing Levels

Depending on the size of your business, you may not have sufficient staff in place to set up and support a project controls team. Many businesses simply do not have adequate staffing levels to dedicate one or more employees to solely focus on projects; often existing resources may already be overextended, and only able to focus efforts on daily operational duties.


Perhaps your capital expenditure don't represent a large enough investment to warrant full time internal personnel. Outsourcing allows companies the flexibility to receive services necessary as work demands fluctuate.  

Clarity of Focus

Outsourced specialized resources can enable businesses to execute projects successfully while allowing your internal staff and management to focus on what they do best. Thus allowing each party to capitalize on their core competencies.
