1. Cost-effective partnership comes in a handy way
Dedicated Team Management (DTM) has a transparent, simple, and monthly billing cycle. Depending on the size and composition of the team allotted to the project, every month client pays the service provider. This way you can get rid of an ongoing salary of assigned team by paying them on project basis. In other words, you can easily ‘hire and fire’ team for your project as per need.
Also, there are good chances of getting a good outsourcing partners for your agency’s ongoing projects need.
2. A proper onboarding is the key!
You need to be super clear about project need and be sure of the hiring team’s communication skills, competence, and experience before you decide to bring them onboard. Make sure by investing proper time and energy in onboarding any new team for your project.
For starters, you absolutely must invest some time getting to know each-other, especially when you’re planning to work together for longer period. You can introduce your key agency members to their project managers and other coordinators. You can explain your company’s vision and values for better understanding of your working cultures. This will help in reducing the gap and make them connect with your business goal.
3. Using tools of your advantage
Thanks to technology, making our life easy and work processes simple and efficient, especially when both teams are sitting oceans apart. Yet effective communication and collaboration are integral yet essential variables to make impeccable project delivery in time. Likewise, advanced tools help in tracking and updating projects in real-time so that suggestions and feedback can be implemented simultaneously. It is good to avoid unnecessary ‘To and Fro’ amid the project.
Using good tool empowers both ends- your project need and the outsourcing partners. It becomes easy to streamline the processes further, efficiently. For instance, you might consider these good team collaboration and project management tools- Slack, ProofHub, Asana, Basecamp, InVision, TrackDuck, and BugHerd. These tools will help you in better team collaboration and easy communication. Email and text can often be misunderstood, it is good to speak to each-other as much as possible.
4. Constant update of work-in-progress projects
Streamlined communication and interactions are required to complete any project on time. With clear understanding and expectations set for the team, you can decide on deadlines ahead of time with deliverables. Also, you need to set a proper tracking and feedback system. It becomes important as you won’t directly be overseeing the work, but you can have a look at every step and module while developing your project with the help of any outsourcing partner.
A quick call whenever required is a good way to stay updated with your project progress. However, you need to set a call in advance due to availability of hiring team on your time zone. It is good to speak frequently as much as you can.
5. Ultimately, a reliable and long-term partnership
Once you find a good and reliable team and you want them to stay – or if you want to start a long-term partnership- then you need to make them feel valued. You can explain and connect them with your virtues, values and work culture and align them with further projects.
You know when it’s time to take a new leap in your relationship after working on some projects, consistently. Take your relationship on a new level of partnership, mutual understanding and shared responsibilities. You can guide your partner about efficient processes and advanced tools that can save huge efforts and lot of money. Always share regular and constructive feedback on the completed task or what can be done to improve the functionalities and overall project.
We’re pretty much sure that you’ll be able to reap the rewards in the form of a stronger and long-lasting partnership. Remember, some good karma never cost much and doesn’t hurt, either.
