eBook Project - The Story

We know from our experience that many people are worried about setting up and managing offshore/nearshore teams successfully. We always get questions about:

  • How to get prepared for managing a remote team ?
  • How to organize nearshore and offshore collaboration ?
  • How to overcome cultural differences when managing offshore/nearshore teams ?
  • How to communicate effectively with a remote team ?
  • How to manage people in our remote team ?

When we searched for books about this, most books only described dry theoretical approaches to offshoring/nearshoring. To gather practical experiences and real life stories, Hugo Messer, CEO of ekipa wrote the books as a crowdsourcing project. The authors are people from different parts of the world who have stood with their feet in the mud, people who have torn out their hair because things didn't work as easily as managing people in your own office.

Each eBook contains chapters written by 3-5 authors and each author gives their view on the particular topic. Enjoy reading our eBooks and save yourself from making the same mistakes others made.

If you have any questions, feel free to send an email to Hugo Messer - hugo@ekipa.co
