Global sourcing of Information Technology (IT) and various business services has received increasing attention since 2000 and the offshoring role in Y2K work.



Global sourcing of Information Technology (IT) and various business services has received increasing attention since 2000 and the offshoring role in Y2K work. Many organizations in  developed economies have rapidly evolved global models involving a mix of third parties at a range of geographical locations. Meanwhile developing economies have looked to develop their own industries to stimulate and meet demand. Both domestic and offshore suppliers are increasingly engaging in designing more sophisticated sourcing arrangements, including offshore, nearshore and onshore components.

This annual Workshop, founded in 2007, aims to explore how new and emerging forms of outsourcing and offshoring challenge sourcing practices and theories, and consequently identify new directions for research and practice. The workshop aims to bring together viewpoints from various disciplines, including Information Systems, International Business, Strategy, Operation Management and Organisational Behaviour on global sourcing of IT, Business and Knowledge Services and Innovation.
