The aim of this study is threefold, first to explore the extent of outsourcing implementation in Iranian organizations, second, given contextual factors of the country to identify drivers and barriers of outsourcing implementation among the investigated organizations and thirdly, to survey if there is any relationship between outsourcing functions and organizational performance of Iranian organizations, mainly based on a descriptive analysis. Based on the review of literature 16 main functions and activities which are widely outsourced and drivers and barriers of outsourcing implementation were identified. A questionnaire was designed and distributed among Iranian organizations. Based on 197 returned questionnaires the extent of outsourcing for various functions in the surveyed organizations was determined. Results indicate that most of the sample organizations realize the importance and the role of outsourcing strategy in gaining and increasing competitiveness and competitive advantage over their competition which could hopefully lead to the increase of their profitability. However, the result of the chi-square test cannot confirm that the implementation of outsourcing is significantly related to greater company success in Iranian industries context.
