Providing Expert Consulting on Staff Augmentation Models
When you hire any in-house development talent, you hire with key goals in mind, a specific job scope and an organizational structure that enables that talent.
At Sphere, we believe the same high standard should apply with staff augmentation.
We have a successful track record for not only providing highly experienced talent, but ensuring a high development velocity and utilization through developer team modeling, proper cost management and business goal alignment consulting. We ensure that each developer you hire from Sphere, as well as your own internal developer teams, can effectively and rapidly work towards with your goals—eliminating any and all bottlenecks along the way.
Staff Augmentation Doesn’t End With The Hire; It Starts With Aligning With Business Goals
We see many companies hire highly experienced and valuable talent, only to find that they are underutilized in the very project they’re supposed to enable. Even though the need for development is there, these companies may lack the organizational structure or team agility to support the company’s required goals and time-to-market; ultimately ending in a failed augmentation.
That’s where we come in. As a partner with decades of experience in staff augmentation, we provide expert, precise and goal-oriented consulting to our partners that enable them to maximize the use of their resources—internal and external and eliminate unnecessary dependencies within development teams to achieve the fastest development times possible for any project.
We do this through a series of high-impact workshops, designed to address the following:
- Transparency/Clarity of Developer Actions Against Company Goals
- Proper Team Scaling and Growth Roadmaps
- Team Resource and Accountability Analysis
- Streamlined, Independent Product Review and Approval Process
We execute this with the end goal to create a more effective research and development structure that better aligns with your specific objectives and timelines.
Staff Augmentation Enablement Workshops
We offer the following workshop to our partners within a 2-week to 1-month timeline—talking with your developers, team leaders, C-level executives and other stakeholders to provide a roadmap to a highly successful staff augmentation engagement. We create a highly actionable, milestone-based plan that outlines a recommended team model for your internal and external R&D teams to transition to.
Sphere conducts regular cadence meetings with all relevant stakeholders to comprehensively learn your organizational structure and current business challenges.
Team Model Presentation
We leverage our experience to recommend possible team/staff models that have had success in your industry, or match well with your current business challenges.
KPI & Goal Assessment
We ensure that any model we create is trackable against your goals—outlining any transition requirements and team enablement along the way.
In addition to opting to hire Sphere talent to fulfill the plan, we also offer extended guidance for our partners to ensure successful plan execution over the next few months.
