Outsourcing is one of the main origins of firm's shrinkage. Outsourcing strategy can be defined as the purchase of a product or a service, which was previously internally realized. This purchased resource remains indispensable to the value creation chain. This paper tries to provide elements of answer to the following question:What are the organizational consequences of outsourcing ? Transaction Cost Theory (TCT) and Resource Based View (RBV) literature are the main theories mobilized to understand outsourcing strategy. We present the case study of a French company that outsourcized most of its functions. We conclude with four propositions concerning organizational and human impacts of outsourcing strategy.
