Dedicated Software Development Team
Summary and Discovery
For medium to large size companies there is often a need to hire outside developers and perhaps a project manager/architect to augment existing staff. This arrangement could be beneficial for companies who need additional skill sets, which might be cost-prohibitive to hire internally.
Over time our team can take over core responsibilities such as (1) developing small internal applications, (2) maintaining existing applications, and (3) strategizing on the development of larger initiatives involving software technology.
This strategy would have minimal impact on a company’s operations and would incorporate the use of existing company team members.
Our first objective would be to develop a high-level roadmap to understand where the company is now and where it needs to go. The development of this roadmap includes discussions with key company personnel. We will initially develop a high-level list of goals prioritized by the company.
Project Management and Weekly Strategy Meetings
We can provide project management for all software technology initiatives. The resources used for these projects can be internal, external, or a combination of teams. The time allocated to a senior project manager will be dynamic based upon the needs of the projects and the budget of the company.
All of the developers on our team have project management skills and might cycle in and out of this position. We propose weekly strategy meetings where we discuss our roadmap, previous week initiatives, and future initiatives including expectations for the upcoming week. At this meeting any roadblocks and strategy changes will be addressed, and key stakeholders who are involved in the projects will be brought in on an as-needed basis.
Due to the ongoing stream of work, we propose an agile approach to development. This entails short cycles of development that involve key stakeholders and allows for strategic adjustments to be made throughout the lifecycle of a project. Our methodology is similar to scrum, without some of the formalities.
