No fool like an old fool. But I am sure Sanjiv from Punjab is thankful for the push to outsource the job you were worried about.
That process works better for fungible young talent who might be plenty gifted but have no experience to set themselves apart from the pack. The best defense against seeing your job outsourced is becoming so good at it that you don't have much competition. The second best defense is becoming friends with the greybeards who are positioned to argue against the manager who wants to rightsize your job.
