Using a sample of 68 offshore service providers (OSPs) in the IT sector in India, the paper investigates how to enhance their RQ– through GM and TM. The findings suggest that the GM of top management teams and TM enhance the RQ and that TM significantly mediates the association between the GM and RQ of OSPs.
