Why Offshore Outsourcing Projects Fail
Source: Global Sourcing Insights
Information Technology (IT) projects can fail for any number of reasons and in most cases identifying one reason, or even a small group of reasons, for failure is impossible. Typically, there are a number of contributing factors, large and small, that cumulatively result in a project being abandoned or failing to meet its intended goals and objectives. Offshore outsourcing IT projects can fail for many of the same reasons as any other IT project: poor planning, inaccurate estimates, ineffective management, loosely defined requirements or objectives, etc. This paper examines a few of the reasons why offshore outsourcing projects fail.
