Offshore development is now commonplace for just about everything from legacy maintenance to enterprise application development. One area where the notion of offshore continues to encounter resistance is product development, as many product managers consider it too risky to develop the “crown jewels” of their organizations in locations that are far removed in terms of both distance and time zones.
‘The fuzzy front-end’ is one of the riskiest periods of time for any project and is all the more risky for product development efforts. This video presents:
* Principles and techniques borrowed from agile methods, lean development, user-centered design and tried-and-true project management
* The presenters will demonstrate how to conduct a high-value project inception that is ideally suited for offshore product development.
