That's a good point. While to me they may sell it as optimizing flexibility, to the higher-ups it might be sold as being more cost effective.

Recently our senior leadership asked for feedback from the department as a whole, and the most popular suggestions included less outsourcing and fundamentally changing our budgeting model. The feedback seems to have been somehow interpreted as "we need more devops and more agile training."
