Have you ever been part of an IT project where the offshore team just didn't seem to "get it"? Where constant clarification and hand-holding were needed to explain concepts that seemed obvious? The root cause often comes down to a lack of diversity. When offshore IT teams are made up of people with similar backgrounds, experiences, and ways of thinking, they tend to approach problems in the same way. This lack of diversity results in groupthink, less creativity, and difficulties seeing other perspectives.
