Cisco Ups the Stakes in the Outsourcing Game

SAN JOSE, Calif. // Wim Elfrink's climb up the corporate ladder has taken him from Holland to France, Italy, Switzerland and the United States.

The 50,000-person company wants 20 percent of senior managers working at the proposed Globalization Center in Bangalore by 2010. The executives will be a mixture of rising stars from San Jose and Bangalore and talent plucked from acquisitions and competitors worldwide.

International business experts say Cisco's executive migration is a shrewd move that should give high-ranking employees critical insight into one of the world's fastest growing economies.
