Are you struggling to realize the promised savings from offshore development partners?  Does your IT and business staff have the skills needed to work effectively in this new environment?  PESG offers four unique seminars to help you refine your processes, measure progress and gain efficiencies.
  • Managing Offshore Software Projects - This two day workshop provides guidelines and best practices for reducing offshore software development risks, improving offshore project processes and effectively getting work done on an offshore project.
  • Communicating Requirements for Offshore Projects - What happens when we hand off deliverables over a virtual wall - or an ocean? What happens to requirements? This two day seminar is for business analysts and application teams looking for ways to improve their processes and skills when communicating and managing requirements for offshore projects. 
  • How to Make Distributed Teams Work - This two day workshop provides attendees with practical methods to meet the challenges inherent in working in a distributed environment.  Participants will learn the characteristics of a successful remote team member along with the skills required to manage virtual teams, and will develop a personalized kit of best practice tools and rules.  Building virtual team processes, selecting appropriate technologies, facilitating team sessions and designing a communications plan that meets the needs of the team are all part of this highly interactive session.  Regional communication preferences and stages of cultural adjustment are presented.
