How To Get a Software Win On Time (When Your Team is Struggling)

Your internal software development team has the speed and experience to deliver a quality product when you need it.


Some have the speed but are a little lacking in experience. Or maybe it’s the other way around.

Or maybe they’re just spread too thin. Your objectives are numerous and your people are surrounded and outnumbered. It’s a common spot to find yourself in, especially when your business is growing (or trying hard to grow).

That’s okay.

There’s a powerful tactic you can use to get your company a software win, even if your current team seems a little outgunned.

Your Team vs. Your Software Dev Project

You have a vital project (or ten) on the drawing board. You’ve got to get it right. And it all needs to be done yesterday.

As a leader, you face several big questions when you’re facing those kinds of battles.

  • Do I wait and see if my current team can deliver a quality software solution?
  • OR, do we have the time to build or train the team that could?
  • OR (if I know my team can’t quite deliver) how do I convince upper management?
  • Should I go all out with an outside group and see what they can do?
  • How do I get outside help that can get up to speed quickly and deliver success?
  • Do we have it in the budget to bring in some outside expertise?

Those can be challenging questions to answer, but the solution is easier than you think.

How to Help Your Software Development Team

Don’t ditch your existing team. A good internal team is vital.

They must be able to handle the expected work and execute the technology battleplan. And they need the nimbleness to attack the dynamic needs of a changing market and new business demands.

Such a team is not an option. It is imperative to make strategic leaps and position your company for success.

But keeping up with tech is a moving target. The tech changes fast (not to mention workloads). How do you build a software team with the right experience to successfully take on new software projects?

In addition, such a team must be available. You can’t afford to have people sitting around waiting for something to do. But how do you do that when workloads change with the season?

The obstacles don’t end there.

Team members must also be motivated, capable, and efficient.

So what can you do (without sacrificing the quality and speed of your software solution)? Sacrifice your long-term software battleplan?

Not an option.

You must have that battleplan to improve stability and keep current users and customers happy. You can’t slow the march to victory. 

Let me bottom-line it for you. Your team must…

  • Keep up with fast-paced tech developments and tools
  • Be available in numbers big enough to hit your goals
  • Be motivated, efficient, and able to perform
  • Not be twiddling their thumbs during slower times

How do you handle all of those goals? There is a way.

The solution is in reinforcing your software development team with some tech special ops. An ally can bring in extra experience and speed. Instead of hiring a group of full-timers, you can hire out a development team on a project basis to beef up your capacity and increase your flexibility in ramping up and ramping down. Then at the same time, you’ll be able to leverage their additional depth and breadth of experience to reach your goals.
