For effective outsourcing relationships, both parties need to validate the entire scope of the work to be done and be on the same page in regards to the solution roadmap.
Based on 20 years of successful experience in outsourcing, SoftServe created a long-awaited solution for this challenge: SmartStart, an outsourcing process analysis framework.
The SmartStart framework ensures that the project scope, product scope system architecture, development process and outsourcing governance are comprehensively analyzed and validated during the Discovery phase of the project. As a result, all the necessary adjustments can be made even before the actual development starts, meaning that the project is completed in the minimum amount of time, with the minimum number of resources.
