PhD in EE, technologist, innovator with years of research and engineering experience. I am passionate about facilitating knowledge exchange and accelerating R&D across industries around the world.
As talents become more and more scarce, large companies resort to offshoring and outsourcing to leverage talents and cost saving from places away from their business activities.
While established corporations enjoy the benefit from distributing their engineering efforts, startups and fast-growing companies may find it intimidating and risky to expand their engineering and development activities to remote locations. The fear is not unfounded - from friction in collaboration to IP protection, as well as difference in culture and way-of-working, entrepreneurs and business owners may not have the experience and knowledge of leveraging distributed teams and facilities.
However, the benefit of dispersed R&D teams is enormous, not only for business owners or entrepreneurs, but for the employees themselves. The challenges in managing and collaborating can be overcome with proper infrastructure, training, and way-of-working. I have been working in organizations of different sizes, with international collaboration across different timezones on various types of projects, and we have seen repeatable success. I will provide advices and suggestions on how to set up your business so you can benefit from distributed team just as multinational corporations.
