Once you’ve decided outsourcing might be a good fit, you have to decide how you want to set up your outsourcing arrangement. Every software development partner is different, but here are a few common categories for adding development capacity.
Hiring Independent Contractors - Independent contractors can join your team as needed for short or long contract terms. It can be tough to find reputable developers with capacity—they’re in high demand. But if you need a little
bit of short-term help, it’s a great option.
Using Staff Augmentation Resources - Similar to independent contractors, working with a staffing company lets you bring on the resources you need for whatever length of time you need them. Contract terms and rates vary widely with this
Partnering With a Development Company - By working with a development partner, you get a whole team as an extension of your team. This option is ideally a much more collaborative arrangement, which requires more of your time but adds
a ton of value.
