Far too often, a company will begin outsourcing with eagerness, but within just a few weeks or months, development has gone sideways, the vendor relationship deteriorates, and the benefits expected from outsourcing go unrealized. It’s easy to blame the vendor, but often, the root cause of struggle is a lack of internal readiness for software outsourcing. We can help.
The success or failure of your software outsourcing is predictable and manageable. Accelerance guides you and your team through a hands-on process that examines 15 risk areas across three dimensions of business readiness that derail software outsourcing success. Then, we’ll work together on a plan to overcome internal obstacles and risks.
We’ve worked with with hundreds of clients on global development projects, and we’ve identified potential risk indicators across 3 important dimensions of software leadership: business, management and technology.
Most tech leaders aren’t experts or even experienced when it comes to choosing the right global software team. On your own, you’re faced with thousands of confusing options, risky unknowns, and tepid qualifications. Due diligence in partner selection is critical. You don’t want to work with companies that operate with no hiring or training standards, no oversight or support, no guaranteed retention or continuity, no insurance or security and no easy way to scale or organize. How can you be sure you’re working with a great partner … and quickly?
Accelerance searches the world so you don’t have to. We’ve reviewed more than 8,000 global software companies to create the most trusted network of high-quality global software teams ever assembled. Our research team reviews top global software companies across more than 200 criteria in key areas of business and technical maturity.

Accelerance guides both you and your global partner so that your first 13 weeks are smooth and development begins quickly with early wins. You’ll avoid mistakes and oversights that create risk down the road. Great decisions and habits formed from the onset will put you on track for high-performance outsourcing months down the road.
