Crowdwriting a book on offshoring
Last month, I have started writing my first book! The past years, I have gained a lot of hands-on experience with my feet in the mud. Based on this experience, I want to develop a practical handbook for managing remote teams. In the market, I hear that many people are struggling to run their offshore and nearshore projects. People experience all the challenges in software development and by offshoring works, communication, culture, geographical distance and language add to the complexity.
To develop a framework that helps others to avoid pitfalls, to learn best practices, I have started the writing of the book as a ‘crowdwriting’ project. We have authors from different backgrounds (a.o. nearshore suppliers, European consultants, European outsourcers) who will write a chapter in the book. I am still looking for more authors to share their knowledge. We’ll publish 5-6 ebooks, all around a specific theme. These ebooks will then be combined into a printed book. To see the more detailed setup and the preliminary chapters, see this page.
If you have practical experience with offshoring and you would like to contribute to the book, please drop me an email at email@example.com
