Many companies are saving billions of dollars each year through offshoring. Others have been less successful, sinking unexpected resources and funds into an initiative that may or may not succeed. Although the benefits of offshoring are easy to conceptually understand, actual execution of offshore development projects is fraught with significant risks. Many companies think it is a simple matter of picking a few low level jobs and tossing over the wall to an overseas partner. Nothing could be further from the truth. And this book reveals the whole truth about offshore development. To be successful, companies must approach offshoring as a strategic initiative. It takes planning, a long term orientation, understanding and addressing issues across companies, time zones and cultures. This book presents the benefits of offshoring as well as the associated risks with proven best practices to effectively manage those risks. Our purpose in writing this book is to neither promote offshoring nor petition against it, but to share lessons learned on this timely and controversial topic. This book will guide you safely, step by practical step, through the sometimes mysterious waters of offshore development. Packed with real-world case studies and hard-earned experience, this book is the only handbook of offshore development you'll need to be successful. Whether you are just starting out or have been engaged in offshore development for some time, you will benefit from the information provided in these pages.
