New Research Center: CORE
The Rotman School at the University of Toronto has started a new research center called CORE, which stands for Center for Outsourcing Research & Education. CORE states as its mission:
The mission of the Centre for Outsourcing Research and Education (CORE) is to further the understanding and effective application of outsourcing..
CORE’s vision is to become the definitive source of education and information about outsourcing. Executive Education, Research, Benchmarking, Conferences, and Directory — One Reliable Source of Education and Information
They have many sponsors and members, including Cisco Systems, PWC, and Hydro One.
CORE just released a summary of initial research, consisting of two case studies related to the issues of outsourcing.
