Developing different applications specific to a company has become the norm for every successful business in today’s world. Whether you need to develop a specific training application for your staff, create a portal for them to log hours on, or create an app to help sell your product, finding a development team for these projects is essential.
Getting the right developers for each job can be challenging. Finding the right individuals who are going to be dedicated, hard-working, focused on your project, and meeting deadlines can be challenging. The market is saturated on all sides, work is plenty and there are workers to meet the demand. Because of this, dedicated development teams become the choice for many businesses.
Below, we will go over the meaning of a dedicated development team, what positives and negatives each have, and which model is best for your company.
A dedicated team is a group of specialists that aren’t individually hired by your company as employees but hired as a group from a different company. This is similar to outsourcing but can be minimally different.
A dedicated team is a group that you hire that works full time on your projects alone. They are hired by your company and can be thought of as employees for the duration of the project. They aren’t freelancers, they don’t work part-time, and they are therefore 100% interested in getting the best results from your business.
A dedicated team is usually hired from a company that commissions these dedicated teams out. This means that you interact with someone who you can communicate your vision with, that person then takes it to the team and manages that team. You do not have to manage them, you do not have to worry about payment methods, you pay for a service and get the service as it comes.
These points all come together to make for an effective and focused dedicated development team. Each employee has your company and your project on their mind alone and is working on it fully. You don’t need to manage this team, you are free to keep focused on your business.
If your project is big enough, hiring an entire team rather than finding each employee, interviewing them, taking them onto your staff, and paying them is far more expensive and time-demanding than hiring a team that is already made and has done jobs together.
If your project isn’t large enough for an entire team, hiring a freelancer is a good alternative.
Getting a big project done can take a lot of time. It can take even longer if the team has any distractions already built-in. These distractions can come in the form of teams not working well together, other projects that are on developers’ minds, or a number of other things that could hinder the speed of a project.
Finding and building a team yourself is not easy. Buying a team that is pre-made and has worked together before saves you from the headache of creating a team from scratch. Hiring a team that knows each other, knows their role in the team, and already has built a level of rapport with their team will be able to communicate and execute on projects significantly better than a fresh team that one put together recently.
Disadvantages of a Dedicated Development Team all have to do with not understanding the scope of your project. If you have a good understanding of what your project requires, you will increase your chances of making a good decision. That said, here are the disadvantages:
Dedicated teams are not nearly as effective or smart when it comes to short-term projects. Determining the size of your project is something that you can consult a professional about, and if you are unsure how difficult a project could be, this would be a good idea.
Hiring a team might make the project easier on a larger scale, and when it comes to most things, a dedicated development team will still benefit you in the long run. That said, finding the right team can be a challenge and may not be time-efficient.
