Amid an unsteady economic recovery, outsourcing has become both a corporate buzzword and a galvanizing issue for many interest groups since the first publication of this book in 1994. Hardly a day goes by without national and international publications like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Business Week, Time, and The Economist discussing the issue of outsourcing from a strategic, legal, and geopolitical point of view. While CNN’s Lou Dobbs maintains a running list of American companies exporting jobs overseas,1 no less than a dozen federal bills and resolutions meant to curb offshore outsourcing have been proposed,2 and a majority of states have introduced antioutsourcing legislation of one type or another.3 Yet, despite outsourcing’s role as a lightning rod for campaign rhetoric, companies in a wide array of markets increasingly view outsourcing as a means to achieve cost or operational goals and as a tool for operational and cultural transformation.4 As these companies embrace increasingly diverse outsourcing solutions, there has been an attendant need for increasingly sophisticated transaction structures, which, in turn, has brought outsourcing directly within the purview of corporate development groups.
