It’s hard for Digital Agencies to show a solid image of expertise in Agile Software Development. There’s nothing wrong on it, simply it’s not your core business.

Not being able to deliver cost-effective Mobile Apps, Responsive Websites and Hybrid Applications at scale is a strong disadvantage when you want to grow your share from the pocket of your customers and keep other agencies-with-software-included away.

This article is dedicated to Digital Agencies with none or small in-house software development teams that need to deliver bigger projects with new technologies in a cost-effective way.

Before hiring and once working together, this post will show you hints of growth when outsourcing to a Nearshore Agile Software Development partner.

In the making of a strategic partnership, both companies will invest much energy in putting together their teams. To save time, money and effort in building a trustworthy relationship before and after the hire.

“Before the hire…”

1- Top efficiency comes from a Dedicated Software Development Team for all of your projects. By hiring a team of at least one full-time developer for each project you’ll reach peaks of concentration on activities from the backlog. After that, you can complete QA activities on your own (only for the small projects; for the bigger ones, count on us).

Most agencies find a team like this suitable for serving their software development needs:

  • Scrum Master.
  • Tech Lead.
  • QA Tech Lead (Might be on your side).
  • Full Stack Developer(s).
  • QA Analysts (Might be on your side).

Does it look over-sized for the start? One of the advantages that make Teravision the Nearshore company to work with is the fact that all of the overhead of management (Scrum master and Tech Leads) are included in the Development rates. So in the end, you can start with a full well-organized team paying for just one developer.

2- Look for an experienced Nearshore partner. This means more than 5 years delivering in the US and more than 30 delivered projects, in a timezone +/- 3 hours, cultural proximity and proficiency in English to accelerate the total production rate of the combined team. When well-executed, Nearshore is good and repeatable for your team

3- Prepare your team for working Agile. Taking the challenge of a new project using unknown technologies to be developed by an unknown team is a big deal. It’s always good to find a partner that can teach you how to work in Agile Software Development.

“Once working together, focus on…”

4- Effectiveness in gathering user stories and defining their acceptance tests. This is a key point in working with an Agile Software Development firm like Teravision. Control and speed are important when agreeing during the grooming and planning sessions for every sprint. Having this, you will secure that your software partner has always valuable ongoing work.

5- Adopting Automation for Software Development Process and Team Communications. If your team is not working this way yet, it should. Time is money and this will optimize your investment: Our teams work Agile in Scrum or Kanban using automated collaboration tools for Software Development (Jira, Scrumwise) and communications (Skype, Zoom, Slack).

6- Estimating as the way to go. Being good at gathering requirements and knowing more every day about the technologies for development will give your team confidence in developing plans and estimations. We are always open to making estimates together.

7- Asking for Ramp-up when needed. “The Bench” concept of Teravision allows for quick ramp-up and can easily double the number of regular developers in order to satisfy a major adjustment in your customer’s deadline.
