Quotes

"Fueled by the Internet and continuous cost reduction imperatives, offshore outsourcing is becoming a "must-have" strategy." - Dr. Andrew Whinston, Hugh Roy Cullen Centennial Chair Professor, University of Texas at Austin

"As a business manager, you need to take a hard look at your core competencies. Revisit the areas of your company that aren't directly involved in those competencies, and consider whether Web technologies can enable you to spin off those tasks. Let another company take over the management responsibilities for that work, and use modern communication technology to work closely with the people - now partners instead of employees are doing the work. In the Web work style, employees can push the freedom the Web provides to its limits." (Source: Time 1999)
