How not to outsource!

For the last 2 months, I have been involved with this completely weird outsourcing assignment. As a product company we are outsourcing work on one of our core products to another company. In itself, not such a bad idea.

But choosing the outsourcing partner.. now thats another story. To cut a long story short, we made a mistake (to put it lightly) in going with the company now. Oh, of course, the project has a set deadline which cannot move.. And Oh, of course, the project has a tight budget which cannot be exceeded. And uh oh, no due diligence was done while picking this outsourcing partner.

Guess what! I am the unfortunate soul who is "managing risks" on this project. To put it bluntly, I am in a lot of shit.

Watch this space for more tamasha!!
