Outsourcing and offshoring engineering projects: understanding the value, sourcing models, and coordination practices

By Leslie P. Willcocks, Ilan Oshri, Julia Kotlarsky and Joseph W. Rottman


In this paper, we review recent developments in the field of outsourcing and offshoring and the implications for engineering management. We examine three aspects involved in outsourcing and offshoring, namely, sourcing models, coordination, and value extracted from outsourcing projects. We conclude that additional research is needed on recent trends in outsourcing and the impact of such change process on the practice of engineering management
