Tips on Managing your Project

1.When a project starts, introduce yourself or your team members to the development team. Specify meeting, reporting, and feedback timings.

2.Project scope, deliverables, and price can change during the course of a project: it is highly recommended that all these changes be agreed upon, documented, and signed by both the service provider and you.

3.If your service provider is located offshore, the greatest challenges of successfully managing offshore projects are overcoming differences of language, culture, and geography. All the processes must be well documented to avoid any confusion. These processes may include: resolution of problems, reports, feedback, discussion timings, etc.

4.Depending on your flexibility, ask the service provider to submit daily or weekly progress reports to see the actual performance in comparison to the plan initially submitted.

5.Make sure the service provider understands how you intend to use the deliverables that they are agreeing to provide. It must be clear about who owns the final work.

6.Save all information from the chats, emails, messages and discussions between you and your service provider. It may be helpful in resolving disputes.
