HBR (Harvard Business Review) Blog Network’s Gary P. Pisano, in the wake of Apple’s announcement that it would produce some of its MAC computers in the U.S., discusses the reasons that this move makes strategic sense for Apple.  The key points are:

  • Diversifies its sourcing risks
  • Provides more opportunity to “coordinate its product-and process-innovation work”
  • Could help rebuild the “electronics industrial commons,” similar to the auto industry in the southern regions of the U.S.
