Humanomics: Making Sense of the Socio-Economic Impacts of Global Sourcing
New Book by Industry Leader, Bobby Varanasi, Endorsed by IAOP Chairman, Michael F. Corbett
“Humanomics is a well-researched, written and heartfelt book,” said IAOP Chairman, Michael F. Corbett. “Bobby is one of the most engaging experts in the world of global sourcing and sets out to both share what he’s learned and to challenge all of us to see its ultimate potential – a truly human endeavor that lifts everyone. He succeeds brilliantly on both counts.”
The book is divided into three parts – starting with the industry, moving on to the players and attendant issues/opportunities, then culminating with a part on perspectives and moving forward. Each of the sections contains chapters that look at particular facets of the “impacts” the global sourcing industry is meant to or has been able to, create.
Drawing on Bobby’s 16 years of experience in the industry, his book provides a unique resource on how outsourcing has evoked innumerable emotions globally, spanning the spectrum of excitement to consternation. He delves deep into how sustained pursuit of collaborative models and global service supply chains seems to have furthered the goal of capitalism – a bandwagon endorsed by corporations and emerging nation governments as well. The promise of jobs is too alluring to reject; the rhetoric of commoditization too onerous to deny; technological advances too pervasive to dismiss; shifts in economic well-being too potent to ignore. He argues that, consequently, such pursuits have seemingly put sustainable development on a collision course with economic growth. Humanomics attempts to decipher the complex maze of how sourcing has contributed to this, how sourcing models could enable nations to create sustained socio-economic value and asks if commercial pursuits have room to co-exist with social well-being.
“Humanomics is a valuable addition to the global services arena,” said Atul Vashistha, COP and Chairman, Neo Group. “Bobby particularly addresses the socio-economic issues and benefits well. A fair and balanced view and I applaud him for it. Read it and apply it.”
Humanomics is now available in both hardcover and digital versions. For a complete list on where to purchase the book, click here (http://www.iaop.org/
