collaboration, operational risk, and change management. With rigor and a focus on your practical needs.

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.

"The editors successfully managed to build a team with very competent experts of business consultancy and services. The authors come from various industries, countries and continents and thus also represent different cultural spheres. They provide interesting insights and describe important challenges and trends using their personal experience as well as statistical facts."
Prof Dr Dr hc mult Peter Mertens, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg
"By choice or by necessity, more and more CEOs and CIOs see globally distributed service sourcing as a major factor in their business strategies. Bäumer, Kreutter and Messner have brought together high-profile practitioners and academics, providing in their articles hands-on information to help clear the mist between perception and reality."
Horst Ellermann, Editor in Chief, CIO Magazin
"The locus of the global professional services industry is inexorably moving east. Bäumer, Kreutter and Messner provide a useful primer on the strategies, processes, and experiences to guide planning at the enterprise level."
