Scaling a business is not a walk in the park. Scaling a software development team isn’t it either. So, most companies face problems when confronted with scale-up best practices. Rapid growth brings as many challenges as it does opportunities. Knowing how best to manage and invest during periods of change is never straightforward for a business, while it has to balance choice with growth opportunities.
When it comes to scaling your software development team, you need a strategy that aligns with your current business needs, while preparing for any future growth or fluctuations. How quickly your business can respond to change plays a big part in maintaining your competitive advantage on the market.
So, what can you do to augment your existing resource without wasting away precious money and putting pressure on your existing team? And how can you do this in a way that supports your wider business objectives, and your bottom line?
Scale up by outsourcing software development services
By outsourcing software development services you allow yourself scale up and down fast depending on your development requirements. You also don’t have to worry about hiring costs and process and you don’t have to worry about letting people go once the project is over.
Outsourcing is a great option when you want to build a distributed team, when you are missing internal skills or when you are being overloaded with projects. You should know that, when you have people with different skills in your team, costs decrease dramatically. In general, the cost of outsourced software development is also less than maintaining an internal or disparate development team as you convert a permanent fixed cost (salaries) into a variable cost (project fees or retainer fees).
Build a remote Agile team and scale up in days, not months
Moreover, an outsourcing partner can provide your remote developers with everything they need to do the job and build for you an Agile team. For example, 7 is a magic number – with one scrum master, 4 developers and 2 testers you could build a fully functional team for one of your projects. Together with your partner, you must ensure that the right technologies and processes are in place and the communication process is done smoothly and efficiently, no matter the cultural and the time-zone differences.
You should also decide on which dimensions do you need to scale up whether it is frontend, backend, APIs, databases, or BI.
