Information Technology (IT) service companies such as Capgemini went through a difficult patch after the Internet bubble burst and prices subsequently collapsed. Gilles Taldu was recruited by Capgemini because of his industrial experience in improving productivity and production relocation. He implemented a strategy based on two principles : 'distributed delivery' (distributing production between front and back office sites), and 'rightshore' (finding the optimal location for production teams in order to meet client needs). Capgemini subsidiaries have been established in various countries, but it is the Indian subsidiary which is the leader in this development, with a year-on-year increase of 80 % in employee numbers over the past three years. Today, the Capgemini management intends to change this so that the Indian employees are no longer regarded simply as subcontractors, but can take full advantage of the potential synergies between the Indian and Western teams.

Organizer : Ecole de Paris du ManagementThe École de Paris du management was created in 1993. Under its auspices, researchers and professionals talk about subjects which open the way for discussion ensuring a high quality of oral and written work. Although short-term concerns are the basis for these exchanges, the approach adopted reflects long-term issues. These include helping change the views which researchers, participants and public opinion have of the way in which private and public affairs are conducted
