The other side of Outsourcing...

In the recent past,more and more multinationals have been scaling their operations in India and more(and more) work getting outsourced to fast developing nations like India and China.Everyday in magazines,newspapers and various other places,we have news about "more and more jobs being cut in US(or some other developed country) and getting outsourced to India".But,on the brighter side "Outsourcing has impacted the economy of India in a very positive way" and Outsourcing has become a buzz word biggrin

Well, this reminds me what Jack Welch mentioned about Outsourcing in his book "Winning-The answers" that "US should take outsourcing positively and utilize this wonderful opportunity to the maximum".

Just happened to see a video on YouTube,which has Thomas Friedman-Author of "The World is Flat" interviewing Indians to know their response on this whole Outsourcing buzz.The duration of the video is around 44 minutes but it focuses on some of the untouched things like "How the Indian middle class thinking is changing and how outsourcing has affected their life etc"...Sit back and enjoy the learnings from this excellent video wink

Hi Himanshu,
You are right, But the ousource doesn't mean the cost factor alone, Now India is having a big pool of talented people. It was started with cost, but now it has ended up with the knowledge.
Earlier the difference was 1/4, But now it is 1/3.
So enjoy being part of the talented pool.
Thanks
Ajay

Hey,
@Ajay:Yes,definitely the scene has changed and Outsourcing is no longer about cheap labor or reverse brain drain.As you said,difference has decreased but,one thing:India has to beware of China...Thats it.

Yes,I do enjoy being a part of the talent pool.

@Abhishek:I would definitely change the BlogName in the BlogRoll.
