Communication and Support

The key to success when outsourcing projects is communication and at the same time, it is also the biggest challenge. And while such an answer seems trivial, it is the problem that gives even the most experienced tech leaders many sleepless nights. Our report will tell you why good communication is necessary, what are its most common mistakes and how it can be improved on a daily basis.

Funding and Contracts

And here’s the elephant in the room - what’s the truth about outsourcing being cheaper? And even though the priorities have shifted a little in recent years from cost-cutting to disrupting and innovating, for many companies one of the top reasons why they outsource IT is still a common belief that outsourcing is cheaper. And as our research indicates, it can be very diverse. And the hardest part is, as usual, finding balance.

Quote Scott Petronis

Scott Petronis

Leaders need to make [communication] their priority, helping everyone not only see the big picture but feel their contribution. It’s also crucial to truly make people feel like they can make a difference with their ideas, feedback, and creativity. There are many ways to reward that, whether it’s simple verbal recognition or anything else, but it needs to be sincere.

Quote Paul Sassella

Paul Sassella

Make EVERYONE in the team aware that the budget is the budget, if amendments to the scope have to be made, other requirements (of less importance) need to make room for it. Do NOT let developers experiment with "maybes", "nice-to-haves" – sorry devs out there, I know you get excited, but there is a time and place – and this project phase is not the time to do it.

Just Working' isn't good enough: Code and network operations reviews are really important. And don't forget to specify those upfront! Wireframes won't get you clean JS!
