Backsourcing - I'm begining to see More Of It. 
Modified By NitWitNick  on 12/19/2011 4:58:27 PM)

Remember when all your jobs were being eliminated and sent Off-Shore to be done....at a supposedly cheaper rate? I never understood how the project was cheaper...each place I contracted at always had to review the Out-Sourced deliverable, code review it, QA it....etc.....so basically we had to double check everything that was delivered... and there were hidden costs like in-house backup support to the off-shore team...so, where was the savings?

Anyway,

I saw this happening years ago after the company I worked for out-sourced our jobs to some cheap coders in another country. So, I moved up the ladder to some of the Un-Out-Sourced areas like Project Management...to oversee projects that are done In-House / Off-Shore and a hybrid of everything....so far I've been safe.

Now, It seems Things are Changing a Little Bit....

In the last couple years as companies run into Off-Shore horror stories and increases in Off-Shore costs due to programmer raises, monetary exchange rates and other stuff...some companies have begun to bring back the IT services that they had off-shored and do it in-house.

I hope this trend continues.

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements.

On the other side, can we actual...
