Outsourcing Mistakes: First Deliveries (Initial Milestones)

In this video, we’ll adresserrors that occur in the initial stages of software development. Entering into a new business relationship between two companies is complex. Most failures occur either at the initial stage of development or when delivering the first results.

What you need to do is to de-risk your outsourcing plan:

  • Plan your first milestone – What is the goal?
  • Create a clear execution plan – How are you going to get there?

By defining a clear goal, you create an environment in which you can objectively judge the results of your collaboration. After that, it’s time to discuss with the vendor how you plan to achieve your goal. Of course, plans don’t always work. But if you have it, you will be able to:

  • understand why everything went the way it did;
  • make sure that the vendor has done a good job.

Completing these conditions will help you evaluate the results absolutely objectively.
