There are two equally important demands being placed on companies today with regard to software delivery.

  • One, the ever-increasing need for high-quality software delivery with velocity at scale.
  • Two, the economic reality that the availability, cost, and need for continuity in software engineering in the U.S. is at an all-time high.

Concerning the first, lean too far offshore and you may experience the “high cost of low cost.” This is where the structure and team look good in a spreadsheet, but the quality curve of delivery starts to rapidly evaporate as the time zones weigh heavily on everyone involved in delivery.

Concerning the second, lean too far onshore and you can expect hiring times and hiring costs to soar as your product backlog continues to grow with limited or no continuity. The high demands of U.S. hiring is a major disruption in team assimilation and retention.
