You have a product release or other development project that will take more resources than you currently have. You could squeeze more time out of your existing staff, but that could lead to stress, burnout and higher error-rates. You could hire additional temporary staff, but then you're face with the challenge of managing their learning curve while keeping the project moving forward. Yet another option is outsourcing.
