Stop selling me developer hours, sell me results

Stop selling me developer hours, sell me results

Start selling me results. I am not going to Ukraine or Belarus or Romania or Russia to manage developers locally. I am ready to buy results only.

As a CTO of a Blockchain tech startup, on Linkedin, I am bombarded almost every day by an Eastern Europe developer companies. They offer an hourly rate that is almost half of Israel where we are based.

As a project manager, if you purchase development and pay by hourly rate – even when the price is very low – you are basically taking all the risk on yourself. The project can take much more time to develop, as a result, you might pay much, much more than originally expected.

So stop being addicted to prices and don’t buy cheap. Be smart software manager. Buy results.
