Easy Offshore / Enterprise Offshore is a specialist consultancy which helps businesses to start and then optimise their offshoring.
You might think, “What is there to know about optimising offshoring? Surely you just choose a provider, or hire some staff and they start work?”
Yes it’s never been easier than now to START offshoring, but the devil is in the detail. The offshoring failure rate is still extremely high, and its usually caused by a lack of knowledge contributing to poor strategy.
Bad assumptions are unavoidable in the absence of experience.
Those with poor multi-shoring strategy, inevitably end up with an offshore team which has poor productivity, poor retention and a frustratingly high level of management overhead.
In the race to reduce costs or increase production, often the true value of multi-shoring is forgotten.
A great offshoring strategy should produce a result like:
(cost saving + productivity gains) – (new management overhead) = substantial gain.
But far too often it looks like this:
(cost saving) – (productivity loss) – (new management overhead) = loss
It’s common to win in one area (labour costs), but lose heavily in productivity, and the amount of management effort required to run the offshore team.
Thus the overall result is neither financially nor strategically viable.
The lack of strategic planning impacts both small and large businesses alike. It typically leads to a very predictable pre-failure, which only then leads to success after a reboot.
Clearly a lot of wastage happens during the initial failure. Many businesses unfortunately conclude that offshoring itself has failed them, as opposed to realising that they have failed to implement properly. Our clients have no such misconceptions because they are well-prepared.
The good news is that the failure reasons are ALL predictable and preventable, if you get help from those with expertise.
Easy Offshore / Enterprise Offshore has built its consulting to address every possible reason for offshoring failure, and developed content and processes to steer our clients around these pitfalls.
