“After talking to Cameron about our needs a few times, we decided that building an offshore staff was critical to our future growth.”
“Decide how you will reorganize your onshore team to work with the offshore team. You have to be intentional. It won’t happen by osmosis. If your onshore team continues business as usual and pretends like the offshore team isn’t there, you won’t get much value out of your offshore team.”
“If there is anything lacking, it’s simply a training issue, not a capability issue. That’s why we have such a detailed training plan, because we want our offshore team to become just as capable as our onshore team.”
“If you provide great training, feedback and ongoing direction you’re likely to have a high-functioning team.”
