Abstract

This chapter present findings from a case study of IT-offshoring. While current research stress problems related to cultural differences and formal constrains for the development of a cross national community of practice, this chapter develops theory from the perspective of practice based theorizing. Doing so, it describes practices which promote learning across IT programmers in Norway and Vietnam. Furthermore it discusses whether or not this can be described as a community of practice and implications for management.
