Offshore development center (ODC) is a business model that helps reduce cost and optimize internal resources by setting an ODC in another country such as India, the Philippines or Vietnam. Provided that you decide to have an offshore development center set up in Vietnam, what should you do to achieve maximum productivity from your offshore team?
All developers need to understand what the goal is and where the project is going. Paint your offshore team a picture of your product vision so they can make smart choices as they are implementing the project.
They also need to understand and be able to see the upcoming work items to do. They want to know they have job security and where the project is going. Be sure to share with them details about release and sprint planning.
Make sure that you engage with your offshore team 1 on 1 daily to track their work progress and provide assistance when they need help.
One of the biggest challenges with the offshore team is working in vastly different time zones.
Luckily, most of InApps developers can be flexible with time zones difference. This enables us to have time for daily meetings, scrum, and Q&A. The shifted hours can also work as an advantage if you could spend extra cost on your team for overtime working hours.
Try not to confuse your offshore team. Get straight to the point and state the obvious. Be very clear with your directions. If their fluency of your language is not good, get to the point and don’t make them assume anything.
Workflow management can be a great challenge and time consuming when you have to plan, organize and assign tasks to many people remotely. Get to know specialized software for workflow management such as Jira or Asana to automate task assignments and deadlines.
Not only you have to manage your offshore team remotely, but the team also consists of more than several members, each of them has their own personality and skills. How can you gather them and work harmoniously in a team to reach your goals without issues? Make sure you pick a capable team manager who understands and evaluates your business requirements and challenges, ensuring that expectations are aligned for every project.
