How to manage outsourced developers

Effectively communicating with your outsourced development team can save you a lot of money.

Here are some tips for managing & hiring outsourced developers:

  1. Invest time researching & defining the end product upfront
  2. Write a very clear user story (or statement of work)
  3. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR PLAN. Changes should be released in 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 versions
  4. Video or visually diagram your instructions
  5. Hire developers who are already familiar with the technologies you’re using
