necessary but not sufficient

This is an old list I wrote out, on what is necessary for a successful offshore partnership.

  1. Dedicated on-shore resources
  2. Investment, not quick fix
  3. Additional hardware and bandwidth, by resource
  4. Formalized KT plan, both sides.
  5. Formalized communication plan, both sides.
  6. External oversight and goals.
  7. Documented criteria for success.
  8. Face time (both ways)
  9. Start a wiki
  10. Have the infrastructure in place
  11. Have escalation plans in place (24X5)
  12. Interview the leads.
  13. Hire high on the food chain
