Abstract: This is a study of Swedish firms that have offshored their innovation functions to India. How managers view offshoring decision choices within and across firms and how can we evaluate the decision making is the subject of this study. The sample is a set of Swedish firms with some R&D facility in India. Data are collected from interviews with managers and decision makers from both the Swedish and the Indian sides, responsible for implementing the offshoring decisions. The result is the development of a decision quality evaluation framework which can be used to possibly make better quality decisions when offshoring innovation.

Keywords: Decision quality; Innovation offshoring
