Rethinking off-shoring.

"The global recession has challenged long-held assumptions about which geographies provide the lowest costs for production. This, combined with the supply chain disruptions experienced during recent natural and man-made disasters, has CEOs re-examining prior decisions about the off-shoring of work," says Miles.
