Case Study 2

Your Company

sells household products and small appliances, as well as personal clothing, draperies and curtains, sheets etc. which are advertised in monthly catalogue you mail out and on your website. The business has been growing rapidly in the last five years. Fifty percent of the orders you receive and forward to fulfill is from older folks who are not comfortable placing their orders online, they prefer to talk to people directly. Your sales are growing but so are your labor costs at the call center where you receive orders by phone. So you contemplate the savings that you might make if you relocate a major part of your internal sales department to India.

After much research and analysis of cost-benefit ratio, sustainability, the regulatory environment, and the overall economic potential of this arrangement, you plan a trip to Calcutta, India to talk to potential local partners about setting up call centers to handle orders from India.

Your "Note to Self" should be 2 to 3 pages in length (not counting the Cover and Reference pages, and written in APA style), and it should cover at the minimum these four levels of content and analysis (approximately one-double-spaced-lined-page for each level) and its implications:
