Developing software without enough of the right people can cause major problems. Here are four common ways having the wrong people on your team can impact your company:
Development timelines will often slip when your development team is understaffed or under-skilled. We aren’t a staffing company. However, we can provide you with some highly skilled software engineers on a temporary basis. While we fill the immediate need, we can provide coaching, mentoring, and advisory services so that your team grows in the process.
Software that freezes, loses data or otherwise behaves in unexpected ways can be incredibly frustrating to use. Firefighting these issues can consume valuable time and resources and lead to missing upcoming deadlines.
An inexperienced team without strong processes and management will typically be an inefficient team. We can help you coach and mentor your staff as well as assess your current processes. You can achieve greater productivity from your existing team and create lasting change by temporarily supplementing your team with Veracity experts.
Your team may be taking necessary shortcuts to meet development timelines because it is understaffed, or they may not be following development best practices because of being under-skilled. Both scenarios often lead to buggy, slow or hard to use software that frustrates users. We can help you assess the situation and provide your team with the tools, processes, and experience to fix your immediate and future user experience problems.
Thoughtful planning will prevent many avoidable implementation issues. Teams are often pressured to skip many of these vital planning steps or skip them because they don’t feel they have time for. We can help you develop a plan to alleviate your implementation challenges and even help you execute on that plan.
Solving a staffing problem at the core will result in lasting changes. To permanently fix your staffing issues, you must explore the primary root causes and address the most important ones first. We can help you assess your root causes and develop a plan that you can act on. Lastly, we will mentor, coach and develop your team in the process so that they can be more self-sufficient. Here are the root causes we typically see for not having the right amount or level of staff:
