vendor quality management

No matter the size or scale of your software projects, you likely rely on one or more third-party vendors to get the job done.  But, if you’re not writing quality criteria into your contracts, you might be stuck overpaying when they under-deliver.


Imagine trying to launch a new website for the holiday season, and your offshore developer delivers defect-laden code with far more bugs than you expected. Do you launch the site anyways—risking widespread user frustration—or do you correct the defects while missing the busiest shopping season of the year?
