The purpose of this article is not merely to counter assertions about technology leakage/spillovers being innocuous or benevolent, but to go further and illuminate an under-researched question: How can companies seek the optimum balance between conscious disclosure and secrecy?

This paper revisits the offshoring, outsourcing and performance relationship. We suggest that adopting a portfolio approach is important to study this relationship. Specifically, we examine the impact of diversity of sourcing portfolio of R&D projects on firm level performance. Sourcing portfolio refers to the spread of the firm’s R&D projects across different sourcing choices. Using ownership and geographic location as the two dimensions for our model, we examine the spread of a firm’s R&D proj...
