Realizing and Overcoming the Challenges of Offshore Development

Communication
Quality processes, talented staff, appreciation of client expectations, and a solid development methodology are the basis of success in all development projects. However, offshore development projects introduce another factor; distance. Distance, if not properly accounted for, can translate to time and disruption of the ongoing communications process. mPower has devised strategies to overcome this additional dimension.

A strong focus on communications is essential to success. This translates into frequent Email, online chat, teleconferencing and videoconferencing, and special emphasis on maintaining a significant presence at the customer location. Where necessary, offshore work shifts can be staggered to ensure overlap with the U.S. team.

Client Involvement
mPower believes a strong partnership with each client is the key to a successful engagement. In order to meet or exceed our client’s expectations, mPower follows a disciplined project life cycle methodology. Involvement of the client in all aspects of the project from requirements gathering to testing and sign-off, is a critical to this process.

 

On-Site Management
The use of an on-site or dedicated mPower Project Manager/Coordinator is an essential element of this strategy, as it ensures that client requirements and changes are communicated successfully to the offshore development facility. It also relieves some of the burden from the client for communications with offshore that often occur outside of normal U.S. business hours.

On-site staffing for project startup and completion also prove invaluable in the knowledge transfer and implementation processes. That on-site staffing might be at project startup or ongoing throughout the project based on the characteristics of the project.

Reporting
Another key to offshore development is regular, rigorous project reporting and frequent project deliverables. This ensures that any deviation from plan is recognized quickly and corrected before significant lost time is incurred. ISO 9001 and SEI CMM procedures ensure frequent, accurate, and measurable reporting metrics. These can be used to analyze overall quality and problem areas.
