Managing offshore software development projects can easily be overwhelming for Western project managers who are new to offshoring. Treading through the intricacy of handling teams across time zones, different cultural and language nuances compounded by the lack of face to face interaction and managing the logistics of a dispersed delivery organization adds a magnitude of complexity to the project.
The single most important thing that can help overcome these is the manager’s ability to build a high performing team. An offshore and onsite team working together with a common purpose can work through all issues and be successful. But how do you go about team building when the team is halfway across the world and coming from a completely different cultural background?
