Dataset: Global Operation Network



The Global Operation Network survey was conducted in the fall of 2011 and was prepared by Copenhagen Business School in collaboration with Aalborg University and University of Southern Denmark. The study was funded by The Danish Council for Independent Research | Social Sciences.  
The purpose of the survey was to map out the scope, character, and consequences of offshoring by Danish companies. More specifically, the following themes were explored: the companies' global configuration (i.e. dispersion, interfaces, and complexity of the global value chain); the effects of global re-allocation (lost competitiveness, hidden costs, etc.); organizational mechanisms to manage global networks (e.g. standardization, virtual networks, clear division of labor); and performance effects.
