Outsourcing Trends From local to global, maybe to mixed options From closed interorganizational relationship to open boundary practice From long-term to short-term From mega-deals to multisourcing to micro-deals From face to face interactions to virtual working context From dyadic client-provider relationship to a triadic structure composed of clients, provider, and platforms Some have argued that this trend is “The biggest paradigm shift in innovation since the Industrial Revolution” (Kaufman, 2006) Virtual enterprise and organizations E-lancers proliferation; the workforce and wisdom of the crowd (Howe 2006; Malone 1998) 4 © Prof. R. Hirschheim, LSU, 2012
Key Contention The future will bring “the non-ownership of assets”. While this notion is not new (e.g. companies renting office / manufacturing space, hiring contractors, etc.) the depth of such ‘renting’ and where/what the assets are, is illustrative of the Third Wave. We coin the term ‘human crowd’ to describe this microsourcing/crowdsourcing phenomenon, and define it as: a sourcing environment where a pool of online workers, or suppliers, can be tapped on- demand to provide a wide-range of services to any interested buyer around the globe. 5 © Prof. R.
