Stop (Insane) Outsourcing Part 1

So many articles on Outsourcing – the good, bad, ugly (and very ugly).  This one makes some valid points and companies should do it in-house if you can and if it makes sense.  Get outside help where short-term or transitional projects don’t justify full-time employees or where skills gaps are present in a given market.  Rightsourcing is a better way – one where companies can fill the gaps mentioned with people who can integrate well (culturally especially) into existing teams – led by the companies own employees.

How many outsourcing horror stories do we have to hear about before the message is understood?
And how many people have to lose their jobs because of this?
