Management of an enterprise operating in the field of information technology is an extremely complex and time-consuming task. Through the optimization of processes, through the recruitment of highly qualified personnel or the use of innovative technologies, the level of synergy in the work of the company’s personnel is brought to a whole new level. Given the possibilities of modern technology, optimizing the performance of a company is a top priority for occupying a competitive niche in the market.
Key factors for creating a coherent and effective team
What factors should be considered when recruiting employees in a software development team or when creating a team of specialists in the field of application development. First of all, it is necessary to clearly identify all the factors necessary to achieve the desired result. Without a clear understanding of the problems of a particular area of development, the result will be extremely vague, it will be impossible to reach a critical mass of users, and the product will simply sink.
First, determine the structure of the company. The list of structural solutions should include all the necessary stages of development – from backend to frontend. Once you start developing project specifications, it will become more clear which development steps will take longer and which can be streamlined by highly skilled people or specialized software.
Before starting to work with the technical requirements for the project, you should pay special attention to the technological skills of the company’s personnel. Focus on the following aspects of app development staff selection:
- When choosing a specialist, consider not only his technical savvy, but also his personal qualities. Each new employee must take his place in the company without disturbing the rest and without creating chaos among HR managers;
- Recruit both women and men equally. Considering candidates for a particular position, in 2022 it’s time to take a closer look at female candidates;
- Trust the experience of your subordinates and give them enough time and funds to implement their own, unique ideas into the technical process of developing an application, – says Slava Vaniukov, expert and CEO of Softermii.
- Equip your team with all the development tools they need, including programming environments, licensed software, and personal productivity tools;
- Create the schedule you need to work. Thanks to the advanced capabilities of modern frameworks for teamwork, each manager has all the opportunities for convenient and efficient delegation of tasks using CRM;
- Help developers grow professionally. If possible, create all the conditions for the work of your specialists outside of working hours, be interested in their professional growth and try to create all the conditions for the intellectual development of the team as a whole.
Remember – the development team is the key to productive and efficient work on any project. The possibility of flexible diversification of the team’s capabilities provides all the opportunities to create high quality projects in a reasonable time frame.
Create a plan for long-term work with the development team
When working with professional software developers, the main task of the manager is to create a detailed action plan, with a detailed description of all relevant areas of development. Competent team management is the main stage in creating a synergistic company that will complete all tasks in the shortest possible time, creating the highest quality software products on stream.
When planning long-term tasks for teamwork, focus on the following aspects:
- The business plan should be a comprehensive work schedule, which will outline the individual tasks of all developers and the main task of the company as a whole. When delegating tasks, it is very important to create an overall picture of the company’s operation, with marks of all the successes achieved and fundamental tasks as the pinnacle of high-performance work;
- Purchase special licensed software for large team work. You will definitely need one of the popular CRM, it would also be nice to purchase licensed versions of working programs. In general, the tendency to work with pirated software is the prerogative of small companies, so make sure that you have full order with the licenses of all the products you use;
- Involve specialists in the field of marketing, advertising and promotion in a timely manner. Your product should be heard at all stages of development, and as soon as the technical work on the application has begun, you should immediately start filling the worldwide web with information about the release. Competent marketing and timely publications will make the release of your application desirable, and it will gain the required mass of users relatively quickly.
Application development is an extremely time-consuming, multi-stage and complex work. With the ability to customize the work as the company’s management needs, developers have more freedom of action. Creativity of the development process ensures that there is no employee burnout, which will allow your company to bring unique products to the market for many years.
