Managing Outsource/Offshore Projects

Capitalize on Lean, Agile, and controlled project management principles for success in leading and managing outsourced projects. Get your skills recognized and gain credibility with this in-demand certification.

GK# 2527

Course Overview

The vast majority of outsourced projects are new development or full scope events. There are, however, opportunities for outsourcing to provide legacy application re-engineering, ongoing maintenance, prototyping and even limited element construction. Have we sent too much of the project offshore, when a smaller portion might have been okay? Should we initially use outsourcing as a way to learn about project dynamics and opportunity possibilities? Developing the right plan for your project while preparing for the challenges will make for project success on your outsource activities.

Outsourcing requires a continuous review of success and failure. You must be prepared to assess the situation throughout each step of the process. In this interactive workshop, you'll develop the skills and receive the tools necessary to achieve results. Case studies facilitated by your instructor will give you the practice needed to prepare for the real thing.
