A majority of the research on offshoring is positioned on a macro level, explaining firm level strategies for offshoring and the antecedents of offshoring decisions, but research on implementation of offshoring strategies is rare.

The decision to offshore work to locations such as India and China may often be initially driven by the need to leverage the cost differentials when compared to western sites, but evolve to focus on other key value levers such as access to talent an...

Large multinationals must continually innovate to produce products and services that meet the needs of a global market. In order to distribute work across multiple sites, they use techniques such as offshoring and outsourcing. This requires them to address organizational and cultural aspects to coordinate distributed product development activities.
