Skills shortage preventing KPO expansion

Yeah a lot of high end jobs are being outsourced, but seems like there full potential of Knowledge Process Outsourcing might not be realised. The talent pool seems to be very limited. And the quality of work needs to be improved too !

Skill shortage crunches KPO expansion in India

KPO industry needs to tone up quality: Report

What is really needed is good quality training and education to realise the potential. There are about 900 B Schools in India, but how many B School grads would you trust for doing KPO jobs like investment research, market positioning strategies, business analysis etc.

Seems to me that the other spin off of this trend would be to make a career in business teaching much more lucrative !
