Presentation by Wolfgang Messner at Project Management Practitioner's Conference 2013 in Bangalore
Leveraging Organizational Culture to Transform Offshore IT Service Delivery Teams.
PMPC is the Annual Project Management Practitioners’ Conference hosted by the Bangalore Chapter of the Project Management Institute PMI.
The 8th edition of the conference in September 2013 was attended by more than 800 participants; Dr. Wolfgang Messner
was invited to speak about "Leveraging Organizational Culture to Transform Offshore IT Service Delivery Teams"
) based on his
empirical research published earlier in the Journal of Indian Business Research (original journal paper
). High attrition rates in India’s offshore service delivery centers not only put any provider’s knowledge management and transfer processes to the test, but they are also a common grievance of end clients often resulting in a critical stance of the entire offshore delivery model. In order to make fundamental changes in how service delivery teams are organized, it is critical to understand the specific antecedents to employee commitment. Outcome from empirical research conducted in Pune (Capgemini) and Bangalore (Infosys) suggests that organizations should first and foremost cultivate in-group collectivism and performance orientation. In general, employee commitment should be viewed from an organizational culture perspective.
