More About This Textbook

Overview

A growing number of companies are opting to perform increasing types of professional services in foreign countries, creating, for some companies, unprecedented opportunities to reduce costs and nucleate strategic relationships, while, for others, representing a major threat to current prosperity.

Outsourcing and Offshoring of Professional Services: Business Optimization in a Global Economy discusses the considerations and implications surrounding the outsourcing and offshoring of professional services, such as software development computer-aided design, and healthcare, from multiple global perspectives. This Premier Reference Source, offering industry professionals, policymakers, students, and educators with a balance between a broad overview and detailed analysis of offshore outsourcing, is an invaluable addition to academic, research, and corporate libraries.

This publication includes a foreward by Lester C. Thurow, Jerome and Dorothy Lemelson Professor of Management and Economics and Former Dean, MIT Sloan School of Management.

    Invaluable addition to any library!

    Many of the topics covered are unusual for a book on outsourcing. These include the chapters dealing with law and intellectual property, the technology acceptance model, healthcare, media, prisons, and modeling systems and processes for effective outsourcing¿ the combination of such essential topics and the unusual topics I just cited makes this book special¿. I also like the organization of the book around the theme of the 24 hour knowledge factory. This extremely efficient organization of work could also lead to the strengthening of relationships among partners¿I have never thought of outsourcing in terms of whether a country might want to restrict such trade 'such as by raising tariffs or setting quotas' and so this was an interesting perspective. Likewise, the high level reading of IP laws and controls was also valuable as applied to the outsourcing context¿. The humble car repair example that is used is excellent.
