there are additional management issues solved by outsourcing.
is great vulnerability that a single analyst will choose to move to
a different their position, possibly on short notice, leaving their
function without staffing for an indefinite period of time. Sometimes
the organization will lose much of the knowledge about prior analytical

when they are not part of a multi-person department. This makes it
