Operational control is transferred into management of commercial relationships, contracts and coordination of the services from specialized suppliers. Best practice shows that implementing and operating a Sourcing Governance Function will require staff awareness and understanding of the key principles and concepts of outsourcing and sourcing governance. For the customer-supplier relationship to be really successful such an awareness and understanding is needed both in the business organization and in the organization of the service provider(s).
