- Dealing with unreliable technical partners who does not understand your business and customers
- Navigating around cultural differences between you and your vendor which can throw a project completely out of gear.
- Miscommunication at different phases of the project leading to different expectations.
- Ensuring that your intellectual property and competitive advantage is safeguarded
- Allotting budget and resources for maintaining the deliverable so that it does not become obsolete.
Maintaining consistent quality levels while tightly controlling expenditures is a demanding task. All of these issues have various dimensions—some technical, some managerial, and some cultural. They may surface repeatedly throughout the entire process, and unless you are ready to address them, they can impede your progress. And while there are other reasons these issues can crop up the biggest cause is an incompatible outsourcing partner
