Title: Human Asset Internalization and Global Sourcing of Services
A Strategic Management Analysis on Activity‐level
Author: Ørberg Jensen, Peter D.; Petersen, Bent
Abstract: In this exploratory study we look at human asset aspects of offshore outsourcing of services that over time become more advanced and strategic potent to the outsourcing firms. As a consequence, the outsourcing firms might want to internalize the operations. We focus on the ways that outsourcing firms may transfer key personnel of local service providers to whollyowned subsidiaries. We argue that a felt need for applying more powerful incentives on key personnel of the service provider ‐ to harness and empower the sourcing operation ‐ may in itself be a motive for, and key driver of, the internalization process.
