Summary

This book offers key insights into how to manage software development across international boundaries. It is based on a series of case studies looking at the relationships between firms from North America, the UK, Japan and Korea and Indian software houses. In these case studies, which have typically been compiled over a 3-4-year timespan, the authors analyse the multi-faceted challenges encountered in managing these Global Software Alliances (GSAs).
