Any business owner or organization should be aware of their options, and one of the most important ones is the dedicated team model, which we use here at Web4Pro.
There are plenty of benefits to using a dedicated team model, and a few disadvantages to going along with it; however, our goal in this article is to ease some of your concerns and to tell you exactly why a dedicated team project structure is the way to go.
Dedicated Team Approach Briefly
A dedicated team works through a kind of contract; wherein, the client (you) and the outsource provider (us) will work under previously agreed-upon terms. The outsource provider and the client will determine a deadline for a project, as well as the workload and requirements that go with the project.
In a dedicated team approach, the client is the one who has control over management. He or she decides if the terms that are being negotiated are reasonable, if they need to be adjusted, etc. After all, it’s the client’s project, which means the client needs to be satisfied with it.
Pros of the Dedicated Team Model
Full Control. Clients have complete control over the project at hand. They can determine the workload that they’ll have out to dedicated team members according to how much they’re willing to spend.
Transparency. One thing that many people appreciate about this system is how transparent it is. Every month, clients are aware of the charges they’re going to have to pay. There aren’t any surprises, and the sum of the costs is composed of a few things; including, the salary of each team member.
Ongoing communication. In particular, you’re better off with our dedicated team model because we’re open to many methods of communication. You can Skype, Facetime, or even use Hangouts to get your messages to us. This means someone will always be there to answer your messages and respond to your concerns. Because of this, projects won’t go off-track often, and they’ll still work for the client.
Efficiency. Since every individual is assigned to a specific team, clients can count on the efficiency of dedicated team models. This is because when people are spread out over many jobs and teams, their energy must be spread out across these projects; however, when they’re only assigned to one, they’re throwing all of their efficiency into that one team.
Time management. When clients have requests or concerns, there will always be someone to listen. For the team members, on the other hand, the benefit is that they can manage their time around their schedule so that when they work, they are as efficient as possible. Changes can be made whenever you need, so your budget can be changed as well.
Complete Team. When you choose your outsourcing team, they’ll usually be the ones who choose any other employees you need. While you have to choose this team very carefully, you don’t have to stress much about the rest of the logistics.
A Few Cons
Client responsibility. The client takes on a lot of responsibility in a dedicated team model, which is why some people prefer to stray away from it. That said, our dedicated team always makes sure to make our clients as happy as possible.
As well as the coherent work of our dedicated team, we always care about the quality and if you don’t have enough time to check something or need assistance, our project managers will take control over the process, reviewing the code and mark all the important things.
Long-term oriented projects. For short-term projects, the dedicated team model is less efficient than it would be for long-term projects. Through an extended period of time, this team model allows the team to grow together and get used to how each individual works; thereby, allowing for higher efficiency in the end. With short-term projects, the team doesn’t have enough time to learn how to work together so that the work will take longer and the quality may not be as good.
Longtime matching process. It takes a while to find the people who will take part in the team. If you aren’t part of every decision and if you don’t carefully select every member, you won’t get the results you want.
Which Type of Projects Will Need Dedicated Team Assistance?
Usually, using a dedicated team model is better for people who are expected to have a long-term project. This is because, as we said before, the client will be billed monthly, and clients will have outsourced providers that they trust for an extended period. However, you can work only with a trusted service provider who cares about the quality and whom you could trust.
By working in the long-term, the client can go over the job multiple times with their outsource provider to change some requirements, adjust expectations, etc. Over time, the dedicated team becomes an integral part of the client’s company. They adjust to the overall needs of the company, and they work to get the job done based on specific requirements.
We’ve already mentioned this in detail, but having a long-term project is also better because the dedicated team has the opportunity to fine-tune its work environment. This means that the work that’s done is time-efficient and is of good quality.
