Onshore-offshore competition: A stage model
The increased IT offshoring presents many benefits as well as challenges to today's organizations. One major challenge is the competition between onshore employees and offshore employees for job security, challenging projects, status and resources. The onshore-offshore competition is complex and dynamic. Unmanaged or inappropriately managed competition seriously undermines IT offshoring efforts. However, very little research has been conducted in this important area. Organizations and managers are in urgent need for guidance on managing the onshore-offshore competition. This paper investigates into the reasons and affects of onshore-offshore competition and proposes a three-stage model on the evolution of the competition. Copyright 2010 ACM.
