Outsourcing Success By Pretending You Aren’t.
In this Practical Software show, SEP group member Mike Murphy, Leadership Coach and Project Management Mentor, talks about what it took to get the off-shore outsourcing projects he’s managed to work smoothly. Mike explains that the key to off-shore success is to not treat it as if it is outsourcing. Make the off-shore group a part of your team. Get to know them. Involve them in decisions and communicate with them as regularly and freely as you would with people in your own company. The same things that lead to successful engineering projects by internal teams are the same things that work with outsourced teams. The big mistake is to think there is a difference.
