Outsourcing could be a very easy process as long as it is well organized, follows a specific clear structure, allows quick and multidimensional communication and has the necessary technical tools and resources to make the project smooth and the delivery successful.
Fortunately, outsourcing has been around for quite some time and it has gone through many stages to become what it is today – a fast way to scale up and down without incurring recruiting costs and having low to no risk if a proper research for the right outsourcing partner has been conducted.
To have an effective outsourcing project, you need to implement the correct management and control tools that will guide you through the steps and make sure each phase of the process is clear and diligently followed.
Flat Rock Technology takes pride in its outsourcing projects organization, which have a carefully set escalation plan that strictly follows the development stages and their deadlines.
Another very important part of the project management is to have daily and weekly communication updates with the team and follow closely the progress and development, give and receive feedback and have timely information about the projects, milestones, achievements and possible delays or enquiries.
