1. Choice of partner
As with recruitment, outsourcing is about chemistry and internal understanding. Therefore, when you sign a contract with an outsourcing partner, you can consider it a bit like a job interview. Remember to take into account the partner’s experience with similar projects and ask for references.

2. Get to know your partner
Once the contract has been signed and the collaboration begins, it is important that you and your partner learn to collaborate. For example, it may be a good idea to visit the country and the people who will be working on your assignment. Also make sure to arrange ongoing evaluation and follow-up meetings.

3. Decide which country to outsource to
Different countries are equal to different cultures. Depending on your project, national preferences may affect your choice of partner. In relation to some projects, it is important to have great insight into the challenges of your company. Then you can choose a partner whose culture is close to your own.

4. Investigate language conditions
Can you communicate directly with the people working on your assignment? Or do you have to go through a project manager or an interpreter? In some projects, it is a great advantage to be able to pick up the phone and call a specific developer. Therefore, examine the language level from bottom to top in the organization with which you are going to work.

5. Get professional help on the contract
Get professional help when signing a contract with an outsourcing partner. There are many pitfalls. Is your contract, for example, written in accordance with your own law? Or is it the law of the partner’s country that applies? Also make sure that there are written agreements about who your contacts are with the partner.

6. Make a clear plan
Make sure there is a clear and unambiguous plan, for example part deliveries, deadlines and knowledge transfer. Then make sure that the plan is dynamic and can be corrected according to your needs. It is much easier for both the partner and you if precise plans have been drawn up throughout the process.

7. Cheapest or most value
Outsourcing is most often about saving on costs. Therefore, the partner is typically selected based on price. But also remember to take into account elements such as quality, delivery time and the possibility of scaling projects. Outsourcing is not just about saving money – it is also about increasing value.

8. Get control of ownership
Who owns the knowledge and experience built up by your outsourcing partner during a project? And is there clarity about your ownership of the products being developed? Make sure you have clear agreements on how to handle ownership. And also make sure that you can utilize the knowledge and experience built up by the partner for later projects.

9. Focus on the time after completion
You can become so focused on getting a project completed that you completely forget about life afterwards. Remember to consider product support as well as further development and bug fixes.

10. Remember the resources at home
Outsourcing is about getting others to solve a task for themselves. Therefore, one sometimes forgets that resources must also be used at home in the company for, for example, project management, evaluation and follow-up. Make sure you have a role distribution and allocation of resources in place before starting the project.
