Mainstream industry notices mutual benefit model

Noticed in an editorial in Information Week, an industry rag for IT folks, the big new thing in outsourcing is arranging the contract so the outside company has skin in the result.  They call it outcome based outsourcing.  We call it mutually beneficial partnership.  It's what our business model has always been based on.

The definititive quote:

... Customers will increasingly reward suppliers that ... allow them to "co-create value".  Lowest  cost services and status quo providers are a dime a dozen.

Welcome to the party, boys.
