GM reverses its outsourcing strategy to insourcing

GM reverses its outsourcing strategy to insourcing

A very interesting and bold move by GM: taking back control of its IT: systems, operations and development, which has long been outsourced to third parties.

It’s going to be interesting to see how this radical move plays out, I sincerely hope it will succeed – the business world needs much more of such “holistic” and synergetic thinking, where the notion of customer or business value clearly overrides cost!

(Thanks to Grady for the pointer!)
