Outsourcing the Campaign for Outsourcing

July 12 (Bloomberg) -- “Outsourcing” has become such a dirty word that it’s hard to believe there could actually be something called the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals. What next? The Society of Professional Child Molesters?

The IAOP’s modest claim is that it is “the leading professional association for organizations and individuals involved in transforming the world of business through outsourcing, offshoring, and shared services.” The group promotes a list of the 100 best outsourcing companies, and even has an annual Miss Outsourcing beauty pageant. (That last item’s a joke. The rest is all true.)
