If the world wasn’t a smaller place, Globalization has made it small. From our fingertips, we can get access to almost anything, any service. The most pronounced effect of it all can be observed in the IT sectors worldwide.
If you haven’t considered outsourcing your software development to another, now might be a very good time to consider. All the tech have made us possible to connect with people and companies well beyond the socio-political boundaries. To get access to talent in any part of the world.
But once you have done all that, chosen your software developer, made a deal and have been assigned a team, what to do next? How to ensure that you get the best out of it all and at the same time, you leave a lasting good impression?
The most common of problems can be rooted in what we sometimes neglect-proper communication. If you lack communication with your development team offshore, there’s no guarantee of what you might get. They may be trying their best to please you but all the effort gets spent in the wrong direction because you did not communicate with them on a regular basis.
You do not want to remain alien with your offshore development center professionals. Checking in often, asking around about the project and the team is a good idea as it gives you the chance to build a strong professional relationship with your team.
There are tons of software that can be used for project management. Smart sheet, Trello JIRA to name a few. You can use these to ensure that you can pass on the right info and correction and at the same time do not cause an information overloading.
And last but not the least, respect your team. They are only human. It can be that they might hit a snag. Keeping the morale up can help overcome the problems and get delivery within the specified deadline.
