I'd say it's possible,'' says Schwartz. ''Is it probable? At today's clip, I'd say yes. I lean that way because China is in its infancy for It outsourcing, so more jobs will move there. And India continues to be a huge player. We're looking at a giant pool of qualified IT people... you're not giving up anything for that lower price.''

The triumphant rise of a professional* services company, circa 2005: It's an "organization" of 300 people. Six are permanent staff… the CEO, the CFO, the Exec VP of Alliances, and three Super Project coordinators. The other 294 are independent contractors. One contractor is 19 years old, and on his first gig with the company. Another is 42, and making her 9th appearance. The company has no "headquarters." Its people, starting with the six "permanent" employees, are all m-powered (wireless, mobile) to the n th degree. Tom Peters in “Re-imagine” 2003
