Quick Overview

In this era of globalisation, outsourcing has emerged as a key strategy not only for achieving competitive advantage, but for survival. However, despite widespread adoption of the practice, there are few practical guidelines in the market regarding how to manage oursourced projects optimally. Global Outsourcing with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System teaches how to execute outsourced projects in the real world.
Because an enterprise software project involves many parties?and VSTS aims to unify them?the book is written for a variety project stakeholders, such as project managers, process experts, team leads, developers, testers, and other IT professionals. With this in mind, the content is broad, with technical deep-dives in critical areas.
The book provides best practice guidelines based upon empirical experience of leading practitioners in the oursourcing industry. It shows how to construct result-oriented development processes for mitigating execution risk, improving quality, and increasing efficiency. The first part of the book discusses the nature of the outsourcing business and the need to develop an effective methodology to streamline globally distributed development activities. The remainder of the book examines various aspects of VSTS from the perspective of managing oursourced projects. Starting with a general discussion about a particular problem area, an issue is first covered from a high level, using VSTS feature descriptions as well as walk-throughs; the material then gets progressively more detailed. Toward the end of key chapters, source code examples and technical matters are discussed.
If you are part of a team managing outsourced projects, this is an invaluable resource.
