(Editor’s note from the Autumn 2014 edition: Outsource #37 – The Outsourcing Horror Show)

We love success stories at Outsource; we enjoy the feel-good factor of sharing best practice and shining a light on positive results. But, of course, outsourcing can also go wrong – very wrong… For our lead feature this issue (coinciding with Hallowe’en) we boldly go where few have dared to tread before: into the Twilight Zone of outsourcing nightmares. Contributors from across the industry have shared some of their horror stories – and given their thoughts on what companies can do to prevent their own deals from joining the list. Those with the necessary mental fortitude can read more, starting on page 12.

Elsewhere this issue amongst much else we launch a dedicated innovation section, With IBM’s Tony Morgan examining the importance of a joint innovation culture (p74) and Alsbridge’s Paul Morrison revealing a blueprint for innovation success (p80); we speak exclusively with Futurestep’s Jeanne MacDonald (p26) about the future of RPO; Source’s Andrew Burgess looks at the ethical ramifications of the robotics revolution (p44); Andy Palfrey aims to blow away the Optimism Illusion (p48); and Derek Parlour shares some of his learnings from three decades in the business (p52). We’ve also got thoughts from Damian Scallon on working hard for a partnership (p56); Jeanette Hibbert on payroll outsourcing dos and don’ts (p34); and Ryan Wray on changes to EU financial support legislation. And there’s even more to this feast: just check out the contents for the full menu.

As always, I’d love your thoughts; once you’ve finished cowering behind the sofa after reading our cover story, you can write to me at jamie.liddell@outsourcemagazine.co.uk – I look forward to hearing from you.
