Types of Global Delivery Models
Onsite Delivery Model:
From the initial consultation till the completion of project, workers or consultants will visit the client site and work there only within this model. Consultants will have direct interaction with the client and thus they understand clients’ requirements properly and address to them efficiently. As there is no communication gap, it will result into better project management.
Offshore Delivery Model:
Under this model, all of activities associated with project will get complete at one or more offshore sites with the assistance of outsourcing team. It is recommended that project managers or delivery managers should be assigned both at the client and offshore site in context to have efficient project management.
Offsite/Nearshore Delivery Model:
Within this model, a consultant will work remotely but lives in same city or country where client resides. There is a possibility of more than one onshore work site. It is also quite possible that some workers will work at the client site while other performs tasks from remote area available within same country. This model is considered as combination of onsite and offsite.
Hybrid Delivery Model:
This model incorporates features of onsite, offsite and onshore models. Hybrid model offers cost-effectiveness of the offshore model and also face-to-face contact that is very much essential to prevent communication gap as well as for project success. Ultimately, the best solution is integrated Onsite-Nearshore model, as it is as expert as onsite model, still delivers cost-efficiency of offshore development.
