Abstract

In an attempt to provide insight into managing successful international technology collaboration, this article presents a framework to guide managers in dividing and integrating labor and assessing methodological and organizational weaknesses. The analysis draws on technology and management literatures and specifically addresses outsourcing systems development work to emerging economies. Recommendations are provided not only on how to organize international work at present, but also on the characteristics of projects and tasks that are good candidates for international outsourcing, and what capabilities must change in order to move to an international project management methodology involving lower project risk and lower coordination costs.
