Dedicated Development Team

Software development and management is one of the most crucial tasks for any organization. What if we tell you that big names in the market do not manage this task on their own? Thanks to the trend of dedicated development teams, organizations now trust someone outside their office to build and manage a software management team that is dedicated to working only on one task at a time. More and more businesses are now resorting to hiring dedicated software teams, usually a team from areas where software-related markets are less saturated and hence, easily affordable. Below, we’re going to break down everything on dedicated offshore developers and their relevant aspects that will help you hire a dedicate development team of your own:

DIS SOFTWARE DEDICATED TEAMS

Part 1. What Is Dedicated Development Team?

Simply defined, a dedicated development team is a team of professional software developers, often located in countries where software development is not an overtly expensive task to get done. These teams are often hired by a professional agency that hires software developers and dedicate them to a single project that has been outsourced to them by a foreign client.

A dedicated development team is called ‘dedicated’ because its members usually work for a single client at a time and do not undertake any other project unless the client is satisfied of the project’s delivery and confirms a specific development task as done.

How Many People Are There In A Dedicated Development Team?

A dedicated developer team can be as big as you want. However, we suggest keeping it small and less complicated.

When asking a dedicated development company to provide you with a team, we’d say you follow what Jeff Bezos refers to as “Two Pizza Team” rule. That is, you only make a team that you can easily feed with two pizzas only.

Generally, including no more than 6-8 people in your dedicated software development team can get the task done with perfection.

Following are the people that must be there in your dedicated development team:

  • Overseer/ Project manager
  • Expert Software developers
  • UI/UX developers
  • QA Automation Experts
  • Any Other Expert That Might Be Needed

Things To Keep In Mind While Hiring A Dedicated Development Team

Hiring virtually, you are likely to get scammed or end up hiring a team that is not up to your mark. Before we move on to the actual process of hiring a dedicated team, here are some pointers to keep in mind if you want to avoid being scammed:

  • Have some, if not too much, knowledge of how a software is developed and processed by a dedicated team
  • Talk to those employing dedicated teams and learn the basics of working with such a team
  • Make sure you sign contracts of protection of your software and personal data before sharing it with a dedicated services provider
  • Always sign a detailed contract when starting the project to avoid future disturbances

Part 2. How To Build A Dedicated Development Team?

By now, you might have gotten the idea that building a dedicated software development team is not a piece of cake. For sure, it isn’t.

Since you need to trust people located at a remote location with all your software-related tasks, the team building process must be smart and efficient. Thankfully, there is no need to intricate software development knowledge for you to be able to hire a dedicated team.

Rather, you can simply follow a generic pattern of steps every other business follows to build their team of dedicated offshore developers. Below, we are simplifying the entire process of hiring dedicated software developers for you.

So, let us move on without any further ado:

Step 1: Understanding The Basics
DIS SOFTWARE DEDICATED TEAM MODEL

No dedicated development team hiring can be successful unless the hiring party has some preliminary knowledge about how the dedicated development model works.

First things first, you need to be clear on the kind of parties that are involved in a dedicate development project. Further, you need to know the kind of expectations that are attached to both these parties and what their job roles look like.

Below are these two teams and their roles summarized for your consideration:

 

Explore Creative Projects

based on the business security

  • Customer / Client

This party is usually a business or an organization, looking forward to having a dedicated team working for them.

Clients often have to manage the bigger level tasks, looking into the provider’s services and their scope of work. Clients also have to provide clear project details to the providers, guidelines on the team management and talent, as well as details on company culture.

Sometimes, clients also prefer working as an onlooker, having full control of the work division. Clients are also responsible for defining budget, timelines, and ensuring that the work happening is up to the mark.

  • Provider:

Providers refer to CEOs and managers of software houses who are contacted by clients for their tasks. After analyzing the needs of a client, providers tend to hire the talent needed for the task.

Further, the providers are supposed to provide all the IT infrastructure, workplace, tools, and resources to the dedicated developers for a smooth flow of the work.

Providers also have to manage the salaries of the team members, deal with them, hire and manage new talent on immediate basis, and do everything else that the client might ask for.

Step 2: Defining What You Need

Now that you have understood all the team roles and other relevant details, let us suppose that you are someone on the client’s end and want to carry on with the team development process.

The next step is to clarify yourself on what you need. You need to be very clear on what you’d expect your dedicated software developer to do and what timelines you want them to follow.

You might also want to have the entire plan in written and with all the details and suggestions on what you’d like from the team. With all these details ready, you can easily and quickly hire a provider that you have been meaning to hire since day one.

Step 3: Interviewing Different Candidates

When you roll out your requirements, you’d be contacted by several providers for dedicates services. Mostly, you get same quotes and expertise from many and hence, deciding among such a huge number gets tricky.

It is here that you need to interview and select the best one. We suggest planning your interview process in rounds so that only the most serious providers are left by the end.

You can interview specific people from the team or can call the entire HR and software development team for an interview.

Sometimes, the providing party takes up this responsibility and get a team of their chosen staff members to contact you. This eases your process further since you are only getting to talk to the best ones from a provider and can easily guess whether or not they are worth your time.

Step 4: Launch The Team

After several interviews, you are mostly able to decide on a specific team that you aim to stick to throughout the project.

Now is your time to dictate the entire team and share your detailed requirements with them. You might want to hold a virtual orientation for your remote dedicated developers and let them know of everything they have to do.

For the launch process, decide on a platform where you’ll be monitoring their work and contacting them regularly. Then, decide a day and time when they should begin working on your project.

This way, your project goes one step closer to becoming a reality.

Step 5: Stay In Touch With The Team  

No matter how professional is the team you hire, you can never expect the project to finish in time and exactly how you wanted it to, unless you keep a check on your team.

Hence, we strongly suggest staying in touch with the dedicated developers and keeping a check on their work as much as you can.

Ask for weekly progress and arrange zoom meetings if you cannot visit them in person. However, do not overburden your team in the entire process nor be strongly dictating all the time. The robs the team of its confidence and ruins their focus.

Step 6: Finalize and Release The Project and Renew The Contract

Once the project is finished and you are satisfied, you can release it for the public while keeping the makers in confidence. If everything went great with the team, you can also renew your contract and ask the team for a new project – that they will be doing with more enthusiasm than before.
