Offshoring and outsourcing today are like sex in the Victorian era: repressed or criticized in public discussion, much practiced in private behavior. Similarly, companies must be more forceful in explaining the uses of revenues and margins derived from offshoring/outsourcing's competitive cost structures and local appeal.

Strategic Planning Alternatives: Mission Discernment

LDRLB

My colleague Dr. Gordon Self has developed a Mission Discernment Tool for use within Covenant Health (Disclaimer: I also work for Covenant Health). Do we outsource part of our organization?

I recently wrote two posts criticizing strategic planning.

Harvard Business

Recent global developments underscore the importance of these societal issues. On the one hand, protectionism, populism, and wide-spread distrust of business’s role in politics is threatening international corporations (think Carrier, Boeing, and tariffs/taxes for off-shoring and outsourcing).

6 Rules for Building and Scaling Company Culture

Harvard Business Review

Over 30 years, he shaped a large part of its people development program, and taught me the framework of “common values and common standards.” Or will you create go further, and only promote the people who develop others?

The Rise of the General Counsel

Harvard Business Review

But from a business person's point of view, Sorkin and other writers in the section don't even discuss one of the most important developments of the last 25 years: the rise in the role, status and importance of the general counsel and other inside lawyers employed directly by the corporation.
