Combining academic rigor with a focused managerial orientation, the Offshoring Research Network (ORN) has been collecting company-level data on outsourcing practices and globalization trends since 2004. As the world's most highly recognized research project on global sourcing, the ORN invites companies worldwide to become more fully involved in its studies and events.
In response to requests and suggestions from research participants, Fuqua alumni, and friends of the school, the ORN has been rolling out a suite of services for companies participating in ORN survey projects. As part of these initiatives, all ORN research participants will continue to receive the complete data each year from the Global Corporate Client Survey and Service Provider Survey.
ORN corporate members whose involvement goes beyond research participation are also able to commission custom studies and analyses. In addition, they may participate in Executive Roundtable events that bring together industry practitioners with top scholars and experts in the global sourcing arena.
