The Dedicated Team Model is a financial engagement business model that is becoming more popular in outsourcing, particularly software testing.
Given the great level of interest in this model among our clients, we’ve chosen to discuss its benefits and drawbacks, as well as the characteristics that must be considered before choosing on DTM collaboration.
So, let’s begin!
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE A DEDICATED TEAM?
A dedicated software development team, like time and materials (T&M) and fixed price (FP), is a paradigm of partnership between client and service provider. We shall discuss the QA team as a software testing and quality assurance organization.
By signing a contract to operate under the “dedicated team” model, the client gains access to specialists who have been hand-picked to meet the needs of a given product.
A specialized staff concentrates solely on the IT solution, allowing the customer to manage the process and focus on higher-level duties. The QA service provider is in charge of hiring new personnel and providing administrative assistance to the team.
The team’s performance and individual QA specialist’s KPIs are routinely checked, and improvements to the workflow are made as needed.
When is it appropriate to use a specialized team model for a project?
- You want to work with a service provider on a long-term basis;
- Your project’s needs are always changing;
- You think that a larger crew will be needed to complete the task;
- You don’t want to train and employ your own staff and don’t have the means to do so.
- You want to save money on quality assurance.
WHEN SHOULD YOU THINK ABOUT WORKING ON THE DT MODEL?
When you want to have a long-term relationship with a service provider, the dedicated team model is advised. It’s also useful if you don’t have the time or money to employ and train an internal staff, or if you anticipate that the number of participants will need to grow.
The Advantages of a Dedicated Team Model
- Full participation in the project’s needs and approach; adjusting work hours to match the client’s time zone
- Ability to conduct interviews with all experts
- Complete control over the design process
- Reports in detail and frequent collaboration
- Rapid resource replacement and expansion
- The project’s long-term worth is enhanced through the collection of experience and the retention of information.
What are the three key benefits of this business that make it appealing to customers?
We may identify the transparency of the process, the capacity to manage the progress of work, and the ability to swiftly increase the team, in addition to team engagement (which is common for this model).
Dedicated teams can operate on the customer’s side, remotely on the supplier’s side, or combine both engagement techniques, depending on the circumstances of the project.
Furthermore, these teams continue to assist their clients in maintaining confidence in the quality of their IT applications, even in the most turbulent settings. We provided our clients the option of relocating the entire team or individual members to work from home in reaction to recent events in the globe, in order to avoid the health risks that might jeopardize company continuity.
