Are you a company in the post pandemic period and are struggling to keep up with demand? Luckily, despite the increased challenges in 2022, there are many solutions to augment and extend your IT team immediately without the added costs and time to hire new employees. This article will outline how the fix cost, staff augmentation, and team extension models work and which model will best service your needs, especially as companies face the additional challenge of staffing shortages in this post pandemic period.
There are many scientific articles that prove how many benefits the human body reaps from physical activity and playing sports. Exercise strengthens the brain, improves memory and the ability to think. It prolongs life, improves skin health, strengthens muscles and bones, improves sleep quality, speeds up metabolism and strengthens team spirit.
There are IT companies and there are successful IT companies. When it comes to the latter, development teams simply know what they are doing, and there are reasons for that. The main feature of successful development teams – which can be up to ten times more successful than others – is the correct choice of project development strategy, which is determined by the parameters of delivery time, budget, team size, detailed task description and goals.
Work is changing, for sure, and there are lots of concerns about safety in offices and team productivity in this mixed, hybrid model of working. It’s important to look for vendors and partners who have already worked this way, so there’s less of a learning curve.
At Serengeti, we use something called the Team Extension Model. The model was developed because we saw companies desperately try to find software development help, but not be able to find a group of developers that was both flexible and had expertise.
When organizations first learn about nearshoring -- the concept of getting development work done in a neighboring country instead of your own country, or within your own team -- there are traditionally a number of myths and concerns that come up first. To see the value in outsourcing development work, you need to understand the misperceptions and then be able to counter them. This is a guide to doing just that.
Obviously we’re big fans of business outsourcing for everyone -- it’s a service we provide to companies looking to scale their software development function-- but sometimes people (prospective clients) are confused by the sheer need for outsourcing.
Trust is the underpinning of almost any human relationship, personal or professional. It’s hard to run deep with someone -- develop their career, marry them, etc. -- if trust is lacking.
One of the biggest concerns people tend to have with outsourcing a function, especially a function as crucial as software development, is “How do I know I can trust the team I’m giving this work to? How can I trust them if I don’t see them every day in my HQ offices?”
Through Team Extension Model, you benefit not only from instant capacity but also from the flexibility to expand or shrink your team size and the option to add missing skills to accommodate your company’s ever-changing needs.
