IBM's turnaround in the last decade is an impressive and well-documented business story. But behind that success is a less told people story, which explains how the corporation dramatically altered its already diverse composition and created millions of dollars in new business. By the time Lou Gerstner took the helm in 1993, IBM had a long history of progressive management when it came to civil rights and equal-opportunity employment. But Gerstner felt IBM wasn't taking full advantage of a diver...

For companies considering offshoring, there are dangers in taking too narrow a geographical view, say the authors. Every country presents a different mix of strengths and weaknesses. One country may, for instance, have very low labor costs but a high degree of political instability and a small domestic market.

Bogota, Colombia--a city of 7 million people--has 22,000 registered buses and 25,000 bus owners, a recipe for mass-transit chaos. Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city, has 11,000 buses for 12 million people; Santiago, the capital of Chile, 9,000 buses for 5 million people (Exhibit 1). In Bogota, the number of passengers per bus is low, the owners barely cover their costs, and the process for allocating routes is a nightmare. The mayor of Bogota, Enrique Penalosa, has made overhauling the city's mass...

This paper reports the findings from the Offshoring Research Network (ORN), which studies the offshoring of administrative and technical work to low-cost countries. Initial data suggest that offshoring is still at an early stage but growing rapidly. However, as the practice of offshoring becomes more widely adopted it is likely to fundamentally change the way companies in the industrialised high-cost economies organise to compete globally. The picture that emerges is that adoption of offshoring ...
