3. Analysis of different factors which affect decision regarding outsourcing and in house with the help of performance objective

  • The first point which British Petroleum should consider while outsourcing or in housing of product or services is involvement of government. As stated by Pienaar and Vogt (2012), every country is having their own set of outsourcing and in sourcing rules and regulation. For example, if BP is outsourcing their IT based work to firm situated in Asia. Then they have to follow outsourcing and other related policies of both countries, that is, outsourcing country and their own.

And the in housing of BP product is decided taking into this factor in consideration.

4. Analysis and evaluation of different risk involved in decision making process of BP

As commented by Jiwani (2013), risk in decision making process can be mitigated with the help of proper planning and management.

As mentioned by Highn (2011), the security and privacy measure will help in outsourcing and in housing of product and services. For example, if information security is not proper than, British Petroleum while outsourcing or in housing can lose their data.
  • The main focus of management should be on their strategies, procedures and policies so that risk occurrence chance is low. As commented by Jones and Robinson (2012), it can be done by managing the availability of resources and by proper implementation of information.
  • The other process in which risk can occur while outsourcing or in housing is flow of information process.
