Consider These Factors Before Outsourcing

If you’re unsure whether to handle a QA project in-house or engage a testing firm, consider the examples below.

#1) Skill Gap in One-Time Project & Internal Quality Assurance Team

Assuming you complete the testing for a one-time assignment, the project will necessitate specialized skills that your internal team lacks.

In this scenario, training internal resources is an option, but it would be time-consuming and cost-prohibitive. As a result, you can choose to outsource your QA job to a business that has the necessary knowledge and utilizes cutting-edge technology.

#2) Project with a short timeline but a large number of people required

A QA team’s strength is always inferior to that of the Development and Maintenance teams. The QA window is frequently shortened due to development delays or other factors, and the project or business will want QA completion as soon as possible.

In such instances, one option is to use current resources to complete high-level testing or to hire more people to do rigorous testing. The latter becomes a challenging option because interviewing and hiring employees for testing, as well as maintaining them over time, is difficult. Outsourcing the work to a reputable QA firm is thus a preferable alternative.

#3) Long-term project with a budget constraint

Outsourcing work is a well-known cost-cutting strategy. When compared to having a contract with a third party, maintaining an internal workforce with specific capabilities is always costly. So, if you’re in charge of managing and completing long-term projects, it’s a good idea to consider outsourcing 90% of the job.

Internally, keeping a small staff of business specialists and project coordinators is always a good idea. Outsourcing anything comes with the risk of losing control of the project and expertise of the business. As a result, you should be able to keep a tight grip on what needs to be outsourced.

Nikolaj Tolkačiov

Because I'm lazy and easily bored, I tend to automate everything I can, if I need to do something twice that is a good indication that something
is off. My automation experience suit includes mobile, gherkin, web, C#, Java, JavaScript, C++, Ruby, and multiple frameworks. I do coding and
“DevOps'ing” too because I gain most of the value not deep-diving into one framework or discipline, but generalizing in the whole spectrum of
software engineering. This generalist point of view allows me to see some issues from different angles and come up with more solutions to solve problems.

Jenna Charlton

I began speaking in 2018 at CodeMash in Sandusky Ohio where my first talk How Pro Wrestling Made Me A World Champion Tester put me on the proverbial map.
Since then I’ve given far more serious talks at conferences like TestBash and Star. In 2020 I was a keynote at STARWest Virtual testing conference and I was on the selection
committees for STARWest 2021 and Agile Testing Days USA as well as host for TestBash Home 2020 and 2021. I am an occasional tech blogger, trainer, product owner, and
always a tester, but the accomplishments I’m most proud of are my ordination as a deacon at South Euclid UCC in 2016 and my long and happy marriage to my spouse for
the past 11 years.
