Identifying which digital tasks should be outsourced

Medium effort

Medium impact

Many digital tasks seem simple to start with. There are plenty of useful resources online and it’s beneficial to learn new skills. However, these tasks can take longer than expected and end up sapping valuable time, plus there’s no guarantee of success when you’re teaching yourself as you go. It’s vital to learn when to hold onto digital tasks and when to outsource.

Success rate for outsourced tasks

Decide what to outsource by tracking what's successful

Why this metric?

Looking at whether outsourced tasks have been completed quickly and to a high standard will tell you whether you’ve made the right decision.

How do I start tracking?

Assess the success rate of outsourced tasks after three months and determine whether you’ve had better results from outsourcing.
