Companies  have been outsourcing work for many years. This trend has been carried  to an extreme in the case of offshoring – sending work to other  countries where labor is cheaper. The competitive environment of global  business, the struggle to create and maintain competitive advantage as  well as the demands by stakeholders for return on their investment of  the basic factors of production have made the Outsourcing/Offshoring  topic one bathed in controversy. Is it good business or profit driven  short sightedness? Does it build or break economies? These are but a  tiny sliver of the arguments surrounding these practices. Almost every  business now faces this decision, and with every decision controversy  arises. Currently, India’s low-cost labor has made it an offshoring  destination for global firms like HP, IBM, Accenture, Intel, AMD,  Microsoft, Oracle Corporation, Cisco, SAP.
Arguments for and against this strategy are plentiful and in your  position paper you will take one side of this debate. However, in  writing about this issue you must examine your opinion of the issue  critically. Prior to writing your position paper, define and limit your  argument carefully.  The situation is complex with multiple solutions.  Narrow the scope of your position paper to something that is manageable.  Research your position thoroughly, consulting experts and obtaining  primary documents. Consider feasibility, cost-effectiveness, economic  and political/social climate when evaluating your position.
Format guidelines and a rubric have been posted to help you construct  your paper. Please refer to these as you draft your assignment. The  link to the Purdue OWL has also been provided to help with the mechanics  of writing this paper. There are a few key differences in this assignment compared to others you have completed in this course. Please note the following:

Your reasoning and strength of evidence/argument is weighted at 80% of the total grade. So, clearly this is where you should focus your efforts.
The LENGTH of the paper has been expanded to permit UP TO 4 pages.  However, if you can state your points, support them with evidence and  come to a conclusion in fewer than 4 – there is NO deduction for length  unless you fall below the MINIMUM of 2 pages. This does NOT include your bibliography or table of references!
