Abstract [en]

Offshoring is an emerging trend where companies choose to globally distribute segments of the value chain ranging from production and testing, to product development and innovation. Offshoring of activities that were previously performed at home base create new challenges for the industry, as the complexity of both the process as well as the organizational interfaces increase. Three case studies are used to explore the paradoxes found in the practice of globally distributed development. We discuss the need for opposition, spatial and temporal separation, and synthesis to explain and resolve the tensions and trade-offs in globally distributed development that is visible in these case studies.
