Outsourcing doesn’t mean Timezone problems go away

There’s a great article on the fact that oursourcing IT jobs to India (or wherever for that matter) won’t solve the basic problem of Timezone differences. This definitely makes sense. However… the ball has already been rolled to move quite a bit of IT work to India and it’ll take time for the management to get a clue about timezone coordination problems. Ah well.

I love this quote from the above article:
” Heck, if it saves money, why didn’t you outsource management to India?”
