Resource description

While the extant literature on offshore outsourcing deals with this operation mode inisolation, and typically with a focus on cost effects, we address the broader question ofhow companies choose and use outsourcing as part of foreign operation modedevelopment and as a contributor to internationalization. We use a case study of theDanish company SimCorp and the development of its operations in Kiev, Ukraine, toshow how learning in various forms, control concerns, and relations with foreign partnersmay interact and build momentum for mode change. SimCorp’s experience demonstratesthat outsourcing can be used proactively to promote expanded international operations.
