Outsourcing/ Facilites Management
“Outsourcing is nothing less than a basic redefinition of the corporation around core competencies and long-term outside relationships. These core competencies and outside relationships are chosen to bring the greatest value to the ultimate customer and the greatest productivity to the corporation itself”
