this probably goes both ways. I would suggest that you do whatever is
possible in your environment to increase the amount of working face to
Visit the offshore team for a period as long as possible (or several
periods) and work with them. While you are there show them that you
trust them and help them get the best possible understanding of the
problem they are supposed to solve. The goal of this is to get them to
a state where they can make as many good decisions as possible on
their own hand. Let them experience that you would rather have them
making a maybe not optimal decision than wait for you to take a
"perfect" decision for them.
Another option might be to have some of the offshore people visiting
you and build relations to you and other relevant people (your local
team members, other subject matter experts at your site)
