How Do We Transition To Nearshore
Endava will use its experience in nearshore and distributed delivery to consult on the best way to make this transition, taking into account the specifics of your projects and organization. Many of our engagements start with a face to face workshop where we go through every major aspect of the engagement. We work together to understand the actors involved and what they need to do, the critical dependencies, the communication channels.
A nearshore transition plan usually includes a few phases. There may be initial steps in which certain team members work onsite for a while in order to facilitate knowledge transfer and create the working relationships. We also encourage our customers to visit our facilities, observe our capabilities and spend some time with our teams. Specifically, the following are always addressed for a transition to nearshore:
- Roles & Responsibilities — what does the customer own, what do they want to keep control of, what do they expect us to do, what do we need from them
- Feedback — how do we ensure that we frequently deliver something that can be tested and reviewed such that the customer has the control they need to have
- Environments — how do we test our work, how to we access technical dependencies, do we need to setup a secure link
- Communication channels — who needs to talk to who, what are the technical channels (phone, conf calls, webex, skype etc), how do we make sure effective communication is happening
- Governance — agreeing the reporting structure, the KPI’s to be monitored, the quality parameters to adhere to
