It has long been common wisdom that smart companies don’t outsource the core operations that define them and set them apart from the competition. But that is starting to change as companies contract out elements of their engineering, design, and research and development. Innovation is going global, with pockets of technology and engineering expertise springing up for rent in Asia, Eastern Europe, even Africa. Smart companies are dramatically reconfiguring their processes and innovation footprint — the physical network of operations — to take advantage of that trend. Booz Allen Hamilton’s experts weigh in on the new rules of global innovation.
Kevin Dehoff, a vice president with Booz Allen Hamilton in New York, is a global leader of the firm’s innovation business. He has spent more than 14 years helping clients improve efficiency and effectiveness in product development. Vikas Sehgal, a principal with Booz Allen Hamilton in Chicago, works with clients on strategies for innovation and emerging markets.
