Offshore development may seem cost effective (it can be), it may seem rapid (it can be) and it may seem to produce a high quality product (it can). However, none of this is guaranteed. What is particularly important, given the distances and time zone issues, is that the software development lifecycle is effectively and intelligentlymanaged from the start. Collaborative agile techniques minimise the risk of negative serendipity and through daily standups, short sprints and continuous testing, maximises the likelihood of evolving a great product.
KSP Consulting believes it is very helpful to get to know the development team and to understand local cultural and on the ground considerations, whose importance may not be immediately significant to the project being worked on at the outset.
