About this presentation:

In today’s IT environment remote teams are a fact of life. Whether you are dealing with local resources that are working from home, an offshore team working on another continent, or an in-house team on another floor or in another building, how you manage and monitor your team has a direct impact on your project’s success.  
This presentation will provide an overview of how our firm manages offshore teams and how our goals and values as a service provider have shaped our process as it has evolved.  We will also discuss the metrics we use both internally and externally for tracking project, employee, and services performance.
