In recent years, the outsourcing industry has seen shifting trends primarily due to the effects brought about by the economic downturn. Recent trends in outsourcing point to smaller and shorter deals being made, with the formerly large contracts that have come up for reletting being changed to less complex ones.

This shift has likewise influenced the outsourcing consulting industry. Where in better days— back to the times when corporate outsourcing contracts were large and more complex— consultancy talents “logged $300 an hour for the likes of IBM, TPI or EquaTerra”; in recent times, these same talents are now setting up shops as independent outsourcing consultants, offering the same consultancy services— providing expert outsourcing advice on RFPs, vendor selection, and contract negotiation— at as much as half the cost.

The article went on to identify the reasons for this increased demand of outsourcing consultants. One of the reasons, of course, is the lower price for outsourcing consultancy services.

“… the consulting industry has found a way to adapt to keep itself relevant and much more price-friendly, while still being in a strong position to help clients deal with the sensitive and political task of outsourcing.”
