Outsourcing and offshoring

This will be the first of a series of articles where I give some opinions about offshoring and outsourcing. They are bound to be controversial (if read by anyone), but who cares... I guess your common sense will guide you better than anything that you read.
So far I've seen outsourcing and offshoring implemented in different ways: bad, worse and worst. Actually, that's not completely true; I've also seen a couple of cases when it was done really well: when I was hired as the outsourcer :-). Seriously, I've seen it done OK, and I guess there are a few cases when outsourcing can be the right thing to do.

Outsourcing has been a boon in terms of effective benefits for the companies who get their projects outsourced(saving labour,time costs) and for the companies who take the projects(by developing applications and gaining benefits)

The mushrooming of the companies dealing in outsourcing software development has no doubt given rise to a lot of competition but it has offered a plethora of options for the takers to choose the best deal from the lot.
