8.4 Outsourcing and professional services


As the company develops, its leaders sooner or later face the question of whether it is necessary to do everything by internal resources or is it better to turn to third-party organizations that specialize in certain operations. I.e to outsource some functions. 

For example, if you need to produce a product, is it better to do it yourself or order production from an independent company? How to determine the most profitable business option? 

The answer to this question is provided by the transaction cost theory. Transaction cost theory explains why companies expand their internal operations and structures, or outsource some of their functions by hiring third parties to perform them.
