How To Outsource Product Development And Build Great Products
From Forbes, Eli Portnoy Contributor.
The author makes four good points worth reading if you too are being “driven to software”:
- Never hand off design and development to the same shop (different skills required);
- Design first then code (too much waste if attempted simultaneously);
- Write incredibly detailed specs (yeah, not agile, but this is outsourcing);
- Always cut the project into parts (cut your losses if necessary).
And, as I always say, always have a Plan B. If you are left without options, you have only yourself to blame.
