August 3rd, 2015 by pteodorescu in Software Outsourcing Romania

1. Define clear, measurable objectives

2. Get a realistic view, don’t expect quality to be the cheapest

3. Make it happen. Step by step:

  • Select: get to know people, measure skills
  • Transition: manage knowledge transfer and loss, refine process
  • Manage cultural differences: Eastern Europe is your best bet right now, more expensive than Asia but safer
  • Ramp up: initial projects are learning tools.

4. Manage risks by clearly defining:

  • Impact
  • Probability
  • Ability to control
  • Effectiveness in limiting risk occurrence

5. Objectively track and measure benefits

6. Use an effective outsourcing model

7. Start slowly build gradually
