At SoftwareHut, we use Microsoft Teams to communicate within teams.
Working and being together in the same place is the most efficient solution. But when all or some people are remote, one can create an illusion of being in the same room by setting up a TeamSpeak server or Discord group for voice chat. All you would need to do to communicate in such an environment would be to open your mouth. Unfortunately, this would not solve the problem for the teams working in very different time zones.
Staying in a loop and being able to review the work alongside its completion allows you to make corrections early on. In software development this saves much time and money, as making changes after the project’s completion would often require rewriting large chunks of the code.
Choose communication channels to speak with the team, schedule regular calls and make sure that your vendor updates you on the progress of your project.
4. Idea and information leaks
Securing the quality and project management standards for the project reduces the risk of ending up with an inadequate or incomplete product.
There is, however, one more, essential thing to bear in mind. IT projects are based on knowledge, expertise, insights, and ideas – this information defines the project’s competitive advantage. As you won’t lose this advantage, you need to prevent your design from being stolen.
Signing a Non-disclosure Agreement is one way to secure the safety of your idea. Creating an NDA, you need to specify what information is confidential and assess its worth. Signing an NDA for your project is a standard procedure even while asking for estimation, so don’t hesitate to ask for it while looking for an IT company with which to work.
Ensuring Safe IT Outsourcing
If you’re about to hire an IT company to deliver your project, fear not. Managing IT projects can be simpler and safer than you think. The rule of thumb is to follow the best industry practices regarding the quality and project management tactics you employ.
Of course, you don’t have to know everything – in this case; it’s good to find an IT partner that will introduce you to software development delivery and be able to suggest the best solution for your project.
