Software outsourcing has been a booming business since 1990’s. The reasons are reduced cost, access to wide range of labor markets and improved performance. Today a lot of software development occurs at offshore locations as companies get plenty of talented resource at low cost. Most software development vendors place small teams at client locations to smoothly execute projects. This may sometimes be troublesome if the person does not have some understanding of the country’s culture. Some particular societies tend to have distinct ways of working, and this may lead to cross-cultural issues while attempting collaboration or may sometimes lead to project failure. To avoid project failure companies should learn to overcome cross-cultural issues in global software outsourcing.
