Learn how to build a nearshore development team

Step 1

Sign a contract

Your nearshoring partner will provide you with all the knowledge and expertise required for your project. It is advisable to sign a confidentiality agreement beforehand that enables you to share information freely. Once you’ve verified that a nearshore outsourcing company is qualified, it’s time to sign the collaboration contract.

Step 2

Select the best engagement model 

The three models of cooperating with an external team offer various benefits and suit different needs. In our experience, integrating nearshore developers with in-house teams is an effective form of transferring knowledge, but the optimal ways of working may differ, based on your goals and requirements.

Step 3

Choose team members

It is important for the right people with relevant expertise to join your project. A nearshoring company can help you recruit and recommend experts who are best suited for the specific requirements of your solution, based on their skills, personality fit and experience.

Step 4

Take part in introductory meetings

This series of meetings prepares the ground for a seamless cooperation and includes introducing the team and establishing the scope of the project, means of communication, reporting methodology, mutual expectations and more. For best results, bring all the information you can, as well as collect your questions and define your expectations in advance.

Step 5

Establish communication channels

Besides deciding on optimal communication methods with a nearshoring company, avoid an “us” vs. “them” approach. All team members, both external and in-house, should be committed to fostering an environment of collaboration, ownership and openness.

Step 6
