Abstract

A recent phenomenon of globalization has come to be known as Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO), whereby knowledge-intensive research and development (R&D) work is outsourced to an outside firm or an offshore subsidiary. Primary motives of KPO are thought to be the availability of highly-skilled labour, location of industry-specific clusters, product development costs, and the incentive to develop products designed to suit the specific needs of a target market, physically and culturally distant from the home market of a firm.

Keywords: India, KPO, Knowledge Process Outsourcing, Offshoring, Product Development, Global Innovation, Internationalization of R&D
