Boeing CEO Says Outsourcing Didn't Pay

frank_adrian314159 writes "The Seattle Times reports that Boeing's CEO is saying that the cost overruns on the 787 'Dreamliner' were greatly exacerbated by the company's heavy use of outsourcing. Although it is now fairly well accepted that outsourcing provides little cost savings and what cost savings there are often get spent in increased management costs and rework, the outsourcing drive goes on. It's nice to see a major industry figure saying that all is not so rosy as the MBAs would have us think."
