My partner and I are the only members of our startup consulting company. We are at the point where we fully realize the need to delegate work in order to grow. We want to practice our people and project management skills.
We have met some freelancers (mostly fresh out of college) we think we can outsource work to. I know all experienced people went through this so I'd like to ask:
- How do you establish rapport and trust with a freelancer (who lives far from you)?
- How do you keep him motivated?
- What do you do in the event he disappears completely in the middle of a project?
- Has anyone implemented the SCRUM on a project team composed of freelancers?
