Re: Will the trend toward inhouse IT stick at GM?
At the size companies Mott leads, doing IT in-house seems to make perfect sense -- the scale is at least equal to what most outsourcers offer. For smaller companes the numbers are likely not as clear.

Re: Will the trend toward inhouse IT stick at GM?
This will stick. Randy Mott didn't believe in outsourcing when he was at Wal-Mart, Dell, or HP either, and he stuck to that philosophy. It's a core principle of his, going back 30 years, not a trendy move. From what I understand, GM's leadership is on board. Mott thinks insourcing not only will produce more IT innovation, but it will also cost a bit less. As Mott says, IT outsourcing vendors charge for "resource + margin," so there's no incentive for them to reduce resources applied to any given project or responsibility.

Will the trend toward inhouse IT stick at GM?
Do you think the direction toward bringing more IT inhouse will stick at GM, or will we see the strategy seesaw back to an emphasis on outsourcing? Many organizations identified outsourcing (and skill at doing it well) as a strategic imperative over the past couple of decades. Were they 100% wrong?
