most demanding activity. This forces a wedge because employees are not always fully employed, but it is necessary to ensure that they capture all key opportunities. Requirements for Doing Business Many countries require that a company have a country-based subsidiary or country-based operations to do commercial business. One way of achieving this is through an outsourcing partnership with a company that can also be a distributor for outsourcee products or services in the outsourcer country. This presents advantages from the outsourcee s perspective because they obtain a wider range of products and services (and therefore revenue and profits potentially). Experts and educational curricula abound on the requirements of doing business with many, if not all, probable countries. For example, CalTech University has a course called Doing business with India ;15 Squire Sanders Legal Counsel has a consulting arm and uses a document called Doing Business in China ;16 Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer consultants produced a document called Guide to doing business in Russia ;17 the US Commercial Service developed a document called Doing Business in Slovenia: A Country Commercial Guide for U.S. Companies, published on the buyusa.gov Web site18 to name just a few. Behind every such publication, experts with (and without) personal experience work through the requirements of doing business in other countries. Examples of specific requirements and challenges for doing business in other countries appear in the proper context throughout the remainder of this chapter. Productivity From the outsourcer s perspective, outsourcing presents the potential for significant productivity improvements, particularly when leveraging time zone differences. In a very common product service and support realm scenario, the support follows the sun . As noon moves from East to West the service center people supporting a particular product of organization transfer from a location in the East to one in the West and repeat this transfer to and from every 24-hour period. The simplest way to accomplish this uses two or three equally spaced geographic service and support regions spaced 12 or 8 time zones from each other. Most large multinational

corporations now use this method to provide 24/7 call center support and many (such as international airlines and service-oriented groups such as IBM Global Services and Unisys) have done so for decades. Enterprises involved in outsourcing product development or application development can create productivity improvements by performing development, testing, debugging, fixing, and revalidation around the clock literally. Xiotech Corporation uses several methods to increase outsourcing productivity with a multiregional workforce. Let s look at two: 1. Split development and Quality Assurance/Test: In this method, people perform development work in Time Zone 1 and Quality Assurance/ Test (QA/Test) work in Time Zone 2. As development proceeds in Time Zone 1, people in Time Zone 2 test incremental improvements to the product. By the time the people from Time Zone 1 arrive for work the next morning, Time Zone 2 people have prepared and sent the triage results of the testing. The Time Zone 1 people then review the test results, make the necessary corrections, and address those corrections for testing by the Time Zone 2 people come in the next morning. 2. Cooperative Development and Quality Assurance/Test: In this method, both development and quality assurance/test occur during each time zone. This requires more sophisticated processes and management to work optimally, but the reward is obvious: 24-hour product development. When organized so that the development and quality assurance have a specific Time Zone 1 team member partnered with a specific Time Zone 2 team member, people can pick up where the others left off.19 This is called GeoPairing. And, this method provides some protection for loss of skills should the project lose one or two people. Typically, staffing skills differ from task to task across time zones. One zone may be very strong in one area but weak in others. In this case, the CIO works to coordinate a complimentary pairing of the skill levels and work people perform in each zone. Consider an example of an eight-person development team with three people located in Time Zone 1 and five people in Time Zone 2 where the three in Time Zone 1 have overlapping technical and experiential skills but generally higher than the five in Time Zone 2. As illustrated in Exhibit 7.7, coordinating a
