La estrategia de negocio de Outsourcing In-House

un análisis bibliométrico

Resumen

Objetivo: Este estudio realiza una revisión bibliográfica mediante análisis bibliométrico y una revisión bibliográfica sobre Outsourcing/In-House, que incluye el análisis co-ocurrences de las publicaciones disponibles en las bases de datos Web of Science (WoS) y SCOPUS y su impacto en otros campos del conocimiento asociados desde 1990. Se discuten los temas clave que lo conceptualizan, las tendencias emergentes y la dirección futura que tomará el Outsourcing/In-House.
Metodología: Se ha utilizado la herramienta informática SciMAT que permite la elaboración de un mapa científico en conjunto con el análisis de rendimiento para identificar subdominios conceptuales en el campo de la investigación y la evolución temática de Outsourcing/In-House.
Resultados: El análisis estructural de la producción científica estudiada demostró una fuerte cohesión temática concentrada en 18 temas específicos. También identificó que el mayor interés científico e investigación sobre Outsourcing/In-House ocurrió entre 2007 y 2015. Además, reveló una evolución en los objetivos de esta estrategia, que van desde el compromiso meramente operativo hasta los ámbitos estratégicos, que ha alcanzado un sorprendente nivel de madurez que persiste hasta nuestros días.
Limitaciones: La búsqueda bibliográfica se limita a las dos bases de datos de publicaciones más importantes que son WoS y SCOPUS.
Implicaciones prácticas: Destacar la importancia de este modelo en la solución de muchos problemas actuales relacionados con la eficiencia y el aumento de los costes. Este modelo subraya la evolución del marco de relación entre los clientes y las empresas subcontratistas.
