Abstract

Innovation has gained enormous attention in the IT outsourcing activities but remains poorly documented in the relevant literature. This article presents a brief overview of both innovation and IT outsourcing literatures and provides the theoretical foundations for the research framework. In this context, the sharing of knowledge is considered as an indicator of the innovation potentiality. Furthermore, the different types of knowledge are discussed and contrasted for their relative applicability to studying innovation within an IT outsourcing arrangement. The paper finally concludes with the identification of a research framework that captures the innovation potentiality.
