Offshoring: Distance Matters

I will introduce and discuss the various dimensions of distance. These represent concrete difficulties that organizations struggle with when offshoring. I argue that in spite of the global network the difficulties of working over distance are far from eliminated. An illustration of this is near-shoring, which has appeared to be a convenient compromise of the notion of distance implicit in offshoring. Recent research we have conducted on near-shoring reveals that dozens of nations see themselves as being near-shore. I discuss the implications of distance for both suppliers and buyers of IT services in the Irish context.
