PMICIC (Central Indiana Chapter of the Project Management Institute) held their annual product and project management conference called INDYProjectCon on September 7th, 2018, bringing together thought leaders and organizations to further learn about industry trends. Guilford Group had the opportunity to sponsor the event and lead a breakout session on how to more effectively create and manage outsourced development teams.
The breakout session summarized how the Guilford Group team has built and grown expertise in outsourcing development teams for clients both onshore and offshore. The session brought rather vigorous discussions about the misperceptions that outsourcing is always offshoring technical tasks to lower cost centers. Our experience is that whether outsourcing development to an onshore, offshore or hybrid team, ensuring a coding best practices and adhering to a well-managed PMO (Project Management Office) greatly reduces the risks of outsourcing development projects. In our session, our team also shared examples and takeaways for project managers who are reconsidering outsourced development.
Guilford Group was proud to share its learnings and connect with local organizations and project managers at Indy ProjectCon in Indy. Our team looks forward to further connecting with attendees and is excited to participate in future PMCIC events, including future ProjectCons.
