Want a custom app or site for your business, but don’t have the skillset to pull it off in-house? There’s no shortage of dev contractors out there to help you, but choosing the right one can be nerve-wracking, and getting optimal work from outside help isn’t always easy. In this article, we’ll explore the most common ways things can go wrong with outsourced dev projects and what you can do to ensure the best possible output from your contractors.
You deserve great work from anyone you hire, and the overwhelming majority of developers out there live to deliver great work for their clients. Sometimes, though, the process just breaks down. Even assuming you’ve hired a genuinely talented contractor to build your app, a lot can go pear-shaped on the road to project completion. This is true of any kind of contractor relationship, of course, but it’s a particular concern for creative projects like app development, where subjective perceptions of how things are and how they ought to be leave lots of room for mismatched perceptions and misunderstandings.
