Outsourcing in a flat world: how to succeed sustainably by François Bachmann
Outsourcing in a flat world: how to succeed sustainably
The world is flatter than ever - at least that's how Thomas Friedman explained globalization.
Agile values and principles are valuable assets on such a playing field, in order to outperform competitors, succeed in winning new customers and retain existing ones.
So how can companies in Eastern Europe play their cards with regards to this new situation? What are key elements to succeeding in this flat world of Software Development & Delivery?
As I'm not a speaker from Eastern Europe, I'm able to give you an "outside" view of things; having talked to participants at AgileEE since its second edition and given trainings in Russia, I also gained some specific insights on the Eastern European point of view - and as a Swiss guy, I can guarantee I'm going to be neutral ;)
