Quotes:

Resistance from clients:

Our discussions with them are fairly simple, in the sense that it usually ends with us saying, ‘You would be crazy not to do it yourself.

Maintaining high performance culture:

Treat your offshore team exactly how you treat your onshore team. They are simply an extension of your practice, they are just not local.

How offshoring benefits clients:

We have less things falling through the cracks…now we have a much more appreciative client base.

Goals:

We are good at telling other people what to do. And I thought you know what, if I was advising myself, this is what I’d tell myself. And instead of just making excuses, I decided to follow it.
