Defining Your Value in a Web 2.0 World
Globalization has taken on a whole new definition and meaning since 1999 when only a few organizations sent work overseas during the Y2k crises. Today, just about every organization is trying to stay competitive by sending operations, development, and design to countries such as India, China, or Russia. For the information worker the facts can be unnerving to say the least. While the percent of jobs lost due to outsourcing remains in the single digits, no one can deny the trend of exponential growth will continue. With research firms continuously publishing reports on how organizations can leverage technology from these countries, there will be no shortage of fear in the coming years.
