This is a slide deck, which we\'ve created for a Chameleon PA, is a short introduction to the benefits of outsourcing for small businesses, the pitfalls to look out for and how to get the ball rolling. \n\nOutsourcing has become a critical part of the growth strategy of small businesses since it gives them the opportunity to be more competitive in the global marketplace while maintaining control over their overheads. \n\nTechnology gives small businesses easy access to the time, skills and experience of a vast network of resources which means they can offer their clients more comprehensive problem solving solutions. \n\nThe main problem most small businesses struggle with is to get into the mindset of outsourcing. You need to move from working IN your business to working ON your business and make outsourcing part of this process.
