Abstract

Reducing production cost is vital for ensuring sustainable competitive strength. This is particularly true in software development, in which there has been a move from in-house development to global and now also to offshore-outsourced software development. In offshore outsourcing, development activities are mostoften moved to low-cost development environments that are locally managed. However, this type of outsourcing is not without problems. Most development projects are complex, and moving control and responsibility away from the client increase complexity. But, there is a trade-off between cost and complexity and control, as well as an increased chance of failure of the project. This paper contributes to identify the goals from the early development components and risk factors threatening the goals to fulfill. A goal-driven software development risk management modeling (GSRM) propose to supports this task. We conducted a study based on Delphi survey process to obtain the goals and the risk factors in a different cultural environment for the offshore vendors in Bangladesh
