Due to its ongoing rise in popularity 'Agile' methods are now being used on a wide range of projects, varying in size and complexity. As a result it's not uncommon for key project areas, like development, testing, UX, etc to be outsourced to 'on' and 'off-shore' companies. And although
the decision to outsource is sometimes the right one for a project, outsourcing also comes with
its own inherent risks. Using real world examples based on personal experience, Ade Shokoya
will be sharing the do's and don'ts of agile outsourcing. Attendees will leave this session knowing
how to identify and avoid the common outsourcing problems that could quickly derail your agile projects - and potentially cost you your job. Armed with this knowledge you'll be better positioned to improve your personal power and influence at work, and achieve your career objectives.
