While I believe that managed operations tends to offer you the best of both onshore and offshore worlds, it does not work for everyone. It might not work for you if you’re only looking to test the waters with one small, short-term hire. Or, as was the case for one of my clients, your team may grow so large that you’ll need to set up your own branded office or company offshore.
However, if, like me, you are attracted to the level of control that comes from being able to lead your virtual staff and get progress updates as often as you need, managed operations is definitely a route worth considering.
