I am QA Manager of a small to mid sized company who is looking to outsource some QA work for the short to mid term future.
My general thinking is to contain myself(QA Manager) and the manual testers as the in house team. The manual testers have by far the greatest domain knowledge of our products and do a lot of explority testing which is a unique testing skill which is hard to document for an outsource team. The outsource team will then be brought in to contribute to our automation tests. They will add tests to our automation packs that have been previously built and use our testing framework. The automation testers will be given tests cases to automate and then investigate any issues that fail.
Does this sound like a feasible idea, what flaws could there possibly be?
If anyone has any good tips with dealing with outsourced QA teams that would be greatly appreciated
