This research is concerned with effectiveness of agile methods for off shore Information Systems Development (ISD). Recently, agile methods have been promoted as an alternative for conventional methods because they are flexible and adaptable to different project situations including off shore ISD projects. But, empirical evidence supporting appropriateness of agile methods to off shore ISD is scarce. In this study we have investigated a number of challenges faced in using agile methods in off shoring ISD. We examine the differences between on-site and off shore ISD as perceived by the practitioners. We further present what measures can be taken to mitigate the perceived risks and discuss to what extent agile methods are effective to deal with the perceived challenges occurred in off shore ISD.
