Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The last decade has seen the creation of new international divisions labour in business services, as offshoring from the developed to the so-called developing countries has expanded (Dossani and Kenney, 2007). As the scale, diversity and complexity of ITES (information-enabled technology services) subject to remote delivery has grown, so too has geographical reach. The use of the term global service delivery by industry bodies, such as India’s National Association of Software and Service Companies (Nasscom) (Taylor, 2010a), reflects an evolving spatial change in service supply chains.
