Everyoneís outsourcing? Not exactly.

This survey of more than 300 CEOs finds that, of those whose companies already outsource, 60 percent would consider offshore outsourcing. But what are they actually doing? Chart 6 shows that, no surprise, high-tech/telecom companies are most likely to go offshore. But even here only 25 percent currently use offshore outsourcing. The figure is about 5 percent for financial services companies and just about zero for healthcare companies. Compare this survey (and there are others like it) to scary headlines like this.
