Much of the work being done through offshore outsourcing is in IT, and that is what most of the general public is familiar with. The media has extensively covered the fact that often times a company's 24-hour help lines or 411 operators are actually working in a country on the other side of the world. But there is a wide range of activities that can benefit from this practice.
There are labor advantages, and other advantages--huge advantages to rethinking how businesses execute their processes given the technology that's available. It's not just IT. This is important for a wide range of areas including the medical industry.
An article I read the author Subramani talks about the 24-hour clock in today's business world and how important it is for companies to take advantage of the complementary time zones that exist. "For example, after doctors see a patient, they typically pick up a tape recorder and take notes. Local workers pick up the tapes, transcribe the notes, and return them within one to two days. Instead, that doctor could send his notes as a digital file when he leaves work at 5 p.m. to an Indian worker who, in that part of the world, is just coming into work. By the time the doctor returns the next morning his notes are transcribed."
Subramani's example raises a point about outsourcing that is often at the root of questions today If someone in India is transcribing the doctor's notes, doesn't that take away a job from someone in the United States?
It's hard to say how many jobs have gone overseas because United States companies are not required to maintain such statistics. Forrester Research estimates that the current number ranges anywhere from 12,000 to 20,000 jobs a month. Add that to the 2 million jobs that have already gone overseas since 1983 and it sounds pretty significant.
But in a global economy, U.S. businesses must remain competitive. Some…...

...it to one of your employees for the purpose of developing their skills. Doling out is saying to an employee, ‘‘ I am too busy, you have to take some of the workload.’’ Never try to pass off a doling out as a delegation. Bene fits of Delegating There are many benefits to delegating. You get employees who are more involved and motivated because they are acquitting new skills and developing themselves. Delegation is cost effective for the organization. The company now has someone inhouse who can do work that only you were able to do previously. And it frees you up to do other things like manage and lead, take on additional projects from your management, and get in more sets of tennis (just kidding). 180 ................. 11066$ CH30 11-23-04 15:25:44 PS PAGE 180 Your Best Friend: Delegation 181 Why New Managers Don ’ t Delegate If delegation is so great, why don’t managers do it more often? The number one reason is that they do not know how. It is a skill that needs to be practiced. Then there are the insecure managers. They are afraid that the employee will do it better than they can or they think that their staff will say, ‘‘ If he is delegating to us, what does he do all day?’’ And of course, there are those who just love the job so much that they do not want to give it up. None of these are good reasons for not delegating. The only time you should not delegate to others is if someone above you tells you not to or if you have......

Click on the most recent year next to “Money Income in the United States.” We could talk about the percentage of income earners within specific income classes—those earning between $20,001 and $30,000 per year, those earning between $30,001 and $40,000 per year, and so on. The problem with this type of analysis is that we live in a growing economy. Income, with infrequent exceptions, is going up all the time. If we wish to compare the relative shares of total income going to different income classes, we cannot look at specific amounts of money income. Instead, we talk about a distribution of income over five groups. Then we can talk about how much the......

...on which the suit could have been filed in court—for example, from the moment of contract breach. An obligee who waits until after the statute has run—that is, does not seek legal relief within the period prescribed by the statute of limitations—is barred from going to court thereafter (unless she is under some incapacity like infancy), but the obligor is not thereby discharged. The effect is simply that the obligee has no legal remedy. If the parties have a continuing relationship, the obligee might be able to recoup—for example, by applying a payment for another debt to the one barred by the statute, or by offsetting a debt the obligee owes to the obligor. Bankruptcy Under the federal bankruptcy laws as discussed in (Reference mayer_1.0-ch30 not found in Book), certain obligations are discharged once a court declares a debtor to be bankrupt. The law spells out the particular types of debts that are canceled upon bankruptcy.

...the body back to the liver to broken down and put into bile and excreted. It is considered good cholesterol. 6. Prototype drug is atorvastatin and is a HMG Co-A reductase, HMG- CoA reductase serves as a primary regulatory site for cholesterol biosynthesis and is controlled through negative feedback, and high levels of LDL in the blood will shut down the production of HMG-CoA, turning off the cholesterol pathway so that less cholesterol is produced by the liver. The liver also increases the number of LDL receptors so that more cholesterol can be removed. It is a temporary change and patients on these drugs will remain so for their lifetime or until their hyperlipidemia can be controlled through diet and lifestyle changes (pg 287). CH30 Coagulation Disorders 7. Coagulation occurs when fibrin forms a mesh to trap blood particles and form a clot. This helps control bleeding. plasma proteins are converted to an active state. The intrinsic pathway is activated in response to an injury and consists of an injury, factor x, prothrombin activator, is formed, prothrombin activator converts the clotting factor prothrombin into the enzyme thrombin. Thrombin converts fibrinogen, a plasma protein, to fibrin and the fibrin forms the framework for a clot. The extrinsic path is when blood leaks out of a vessel and enters tissue spaces. In this case, the lover releases prothrombin and fibrinogen which follow the same path of creating a fibrin mesh frame. Fibrinolysis is clot......
