Taking Offshoring to the Next Level, which is based on the 2009 edition of a survey of offshoring professionals conducted by the Offshoring Research Network of the Duke University Center for International Business Education and Research, provides an overview of how the practices associated with various forms of outside sourcing have changed over time.
