The main focus of this eBook is "How to get prepared for managing a remote team." Typical questions that come up while preparing are: Which country shall we outsource our work to?; What project shall we choose to start with?; Which company suits our needs best?; Shall we set up our own captive center or outsource to a partner?; Are we organized well enough to start offshoring work? Most people tend to focus a lot on these 'initiation' questions at the expense of wondering 'how to organize'. Preparation is seen as selecting the right country and partner and then 'just get going'. Many problems can be prevented by investing time in the right organization before the 'real work' starts. In this eBook, we try to provide advice on both perspectives, based on experiences from several experts around the globe. The first chapter is written by Hugo Messer, he describes how to get started. The main questions he answered in this chapter are related to 'initiation' and the questions above. Hugo has gained substantial experience in setting up and managing remote teams, with suppliers, freelancers and own offices. Then, Patrick van Dun, an experienced 'offshore founder', provides guidelines on the choice of setting up your own remote office versus engaging a partner. Zhenya Rozinskiy discusses his best practices for getting the right people on your team. Zhenya has set up several teams around the world. Amanda Crouch from the UK has over 20 years of experience as a management consultant and researcher. She looks at stimulating collaboration at the company and individual level. Ove Holmberg, an IT project manager and agile coach from Sweden, describes his concept of the virtual teamroom. Andreas Brilling from Germany works as engagement manager for CapGemini and has led a large offshoring initiative from Australia. In the final chapter Hugo shares his personal story of how he got started with setting up his own offices in India and Ukraine. This is the second eBook in a series of eBooks that will be published within a couple of month's interval and later on into one printed book. These eBooks are being written through a crowdwriting project and the authors are experts from all over the world.
