Next week, Scrum Breakfast regular Franco dal Moulin is hosting an event dedicated to Best Practices in Near-shoring:
In the working models of software development near-shore is becoming increasingly important. Companies work with developers in nearby countries or entire teams are tied into their own organizations. The main reasons for this tendency are often the structural shortage in Switzerland, significant cost savings and greater flexibility, – among the few typically quoted ones.
Did you know part of Ken Schwaber’s vision for Scrum included enabling US (and by extension, European) companies to compete effectively with low cost labor abroad? It is my pleasure to join an experienced group speakers and to give you ‘A practical introduction into working with distrubuted teams under Scrum.’
