As Product Managers with decades of development experience, we often get asked for tips, keys, and words of wisdom for successful software development projects. Some questions are related to start-up success while others are about off-shore/near-shore development. We are providing articles for both topics here.

A year later, they are suing this development organization, for non-performance.
Below is a list of articles that can help you avoid the pitfalls of bad project results.
