The PM Executioner : A Project Manager's Journey in Offshoring Jobs
by Phillip Tsen




Overview -
Inspired by true events, the story of Peter Fallon follows one man’s fall from grace and into the waiting arms of pride and vanity as he administers the deadly blows of offshoring. Corporate bottom lines are spared, but thousands of jobs are executed. He battles with betrayal, alienation and consequences of life and death. As Peter tries to reconcile his increasingly indefensible decisions, he finds the fallacy in a career that has taken so much from so many—including him. When finally he realizes the damage he has done, the only question is whether he has enough time left to pick up the pieces.
About the Author: Phillip Tsen was a global leader of IBM offshoring management for over 15 years. He started his career as an artist and a textile designer. When the US textile industry turned to offshoring, he changed his profession and earned his Computer Science degree from Columbia University. Later, he became a software engineer at Bell Labs/AT&T before being outsourced to IBM to work as a Project Manager. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and they have two daughters.
