The Total Cost of Engagement (TCE) for outsourcing projects includes more than hourly rates. Management overhead, degraded communications, travel costs, the cost and pain of turnover and just plain inefficiencies add dramatically to TCE.

Most of these costs are directly related to the separation in time between teams.

Depending on these factors, TCE can be 20% or higher between a nearshore and offshore location.
