Extended Team : Engagement model for software development with high ROI.
Most of the growing companies have a hard time to form a full-stack web development and digital marketing team. The search for assembling the right team might take months and sometimes end up in failure because most of the top talent has been snatched by the bigger competition.
As an entrepreneur/business owner, if you are wondering how to make your business grow and reach new heights, then now is the right time to embrace the extended team model.
Here we will explain everything you need to know before you expand your existing in-house development team with an extended team.
What is an Extended or Remote Team?
An extended development team or remote team is not hired on a project basis nor are they discontinued once the project ends. You will have an ongoing relationship with your core team and the extended team.
It is hard to give one proper definition for the extended team model. The variations in this model will differ according to the company you choose to partner with. However, the extended team model has certain specifics in common that distinguish it from other models.
Extended team will not increase your existing in-house team or replace it. Your business and your team will be located on-shore whereas the remote team will work off-shore and fill the skill gap in your current team
You will have full control over the project and be in direct touch with the extended team. Overall, your team and the extended team will operate as a single unit
Division of responsibility among all the team members will allow everyone to participate in the process of building a product or solution. Success or failure, all the team members will be responsible for the outcome
What Are the Team Roles You Must Understand Before Hiring an Extended Team?
To do this in the right way, you must first understand the entire digital solutions process and the specialists who are responsible for carrying out the task. By knowing this, you will figure out how to find the right team members who will work as your remote team.
