Offshore Project Strategy
Today, most sizable projects tend to include a combination of onshore and offshore labor components. Although business has a long, mature history with onshoring, offshoring is a relatively new phenomenon. Offshoring is not necessarily a cure-all for a company's IT cost issues and strategies. It ultimately is based on whether the trend of outsourcing aligns with the organization’s business objectives.
Another consideration is whether the organization is ready to undertake an offshoring initiative as part of their operating model. It is important to note that not every business function should be offshored. Strategic functions such as corporate planning, sales and marketing, finance, and governance and compliance, are excluded and maintained corporately.
We work closely with our client’s senior management to help determine whether their organization is prepared to benefit from an offshoring model. We then develop the plan to align our client’s operations with the scope of the initiative to derive optimal value while control of core business functions is retained in-house.
