  1. Outsourcing respectively offshoring are a good way to reduce labor costs and to get more flexibility. The mentioned 5 key success factors are important however are not sufficient to prevent a partnership from some “offshoring diseases”. There are some important factors that need to be considered when starting an offshore partnership. There sure will be some cultural differences amongst other obstacles as well as communication difficulties e.g. Offshoring 2.1 is a new approach which enables to overcome the obstacles usually emerging in conventional offshoring collaborations. It combines Distributed Scrum with a German or English native speaking Project Crontroling on-site – but even more important – with the same cultural background as the customer. With Offshoring 2.1 misunderstandings hardly arise and cultural differences won’t become barriers moreover they won’t even remain as obstacles. Offshoring 2.1 therefore leads to a successful project for each of the involved parties.
