About this book

This book contains 13 papers from the 7th Workshop on Global Sourcing, held in Val d’Isère, France, during March 11–14, 2013, which were carefully reviewed and selected from 40 submissions. They are based on a vast empirical base brought together by leading researchers in information systems, strategic management, and operations.

This volume is intended for students, academics, and practitioners interested in research results and experiences on outsourcing and offshoring of information technology and business processes. The topics discussed represent both client and supplier perspectives on sourcing of global services, combine theoretical and practical insights regarding challenges that both clients and vendors face, and include case studies from client and vendor organizations.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“I would mainly recommend this for Ph.D. students in the field or for M.Sc. students working on their dissertation. … for scholars in the field of global sourcing and especially for those with a focus on outsourcing, offshoring or IT sourcing and governance, the book provides a comprehensive snapshot to literature and empirical results in these areas and food for thought in forming future research agendas.” (Katri Kauppi, Journal of Purchasing & Supply Management, Vol. 20, 2014)
