SMART ANSWER

Hi class,

As described by David Weinstein the co-founder of HomeKeeper “when deciding whether or not to outsource a product or do in the house. I think it’s a general business phenomenon” (D. Weinstein, 2019). There is a lot that goes into this statement Mr. Weinstein inserted. When deciding whether to outsource a product, we must look at the benefits and the risks. Putting the effort, energy, money, and strategy on the scale and weighing the outcome is literally the factors that need to be considered when deciding on outsourcing products.
