Unmatched Talent You Can’t Find Anywhere Else
Why Hi-End Development Talent Teams Matter to ISVs
Offshore service companies operate successful
models that structure development teams pyramid-style according
to cost. Management ratios typically are in the range of one
project manager to 19 team members. Under this model, the
more inexperience loaded into the team, the higher the margins.
This practice is sufficient for most of the work that goes
offshore from large enterprises because it is carefully spec’d
out, highly repetitive, and only needs to show ROI, not competitive
edge in the market.
The hiring policies, team models, and
management practices of most offshore providers are not designed
to build smart teams, they are designed to build low-cost
teams. As many technology product companies are quickly learning,
this model rarely provides financial return or strategic value
for their needs.
