The same thing as previous paper 12 font, double space APA format, I Attached the Book again to reference the case, can use references but would prefer just the book and one other from a legitimate source.
Read Case Study IV-3 titled “IT Infrastructure Outsourcing at Schaeffer (A): The Outsourcing Decision,” located in the textbook. Analyze the case study and discuss the challenges involved with making outsourcing decisions when different business units within the same organization have very different information needs.
In a 500-750 word paper, address the following:
What benefits does Schaeffer hope to achieve from outsourcing its IT infrastructure? How do these benefits aid in managing the competitive forces described by Porter?
What were the perceived disadvantages to outsourcing raised by Schaeffer’s managers?
Some managers suggested a third alternative, outsourcing the IT infrastructure for the Reitzel division only. Which alternative do you think Schaeffer should choose? Explain.
Why do you think so many disadvantages were raised after the task force recommendation had been developed? How could this controversy have been avoided?
Submit the case analysis paper to your instructor.
