Managed Teams

Specialized talent with “elastic” availability.

With this delivery model, we activate and manage one or a team of consultants to help you deliver projects that require specialized skills, complex resource capacity management, or both. We assume responsibility for the performance of our team. You retain ownership of your deliverables. Members of our team remain available to deploy and re-deploy quickly throughout your project life cycle, with minimal ramp-up.

  • Teams are assembled and activated to your specifications
  • Team members work full or part-time, regardless of project length or resource level needs
  • The team can work on one or more of your projects, at your discretion
  • Team members can rotate between your location and ours, to meet space and staffing police needs

Our on-site team lead provides technical services and resource leadership on an administrative level while you manage the work of the project team. We invest in onboarding and orienting each new team member to your unique environment. Our PMO provides genera oversight and monitors our team’s performance to pre-defined metrics. We keep a team collaboration site and performance dashboard available to you 24/7. And we present formal monthly and quarterly reports on the metrics you ask us to track.

When a Managed Team is right for your project

A Managed Team is not always the answer. However, when it’s right for a project, the results can be dramatic. The following situations point to this model:

  • Speed-to-productivity is required
  • Project continuity is a factor
  • Resource level needs will fluctuate
  • An on-demand team of “elastic” resources is needed
  • Specialized talent is required
  • Your management workload is high
  • Knowledge retention is of value
  • Your business processes are informal
  • You need to own the project deliverables

Resource leadership that frees you to focus on results

We are invested with you in the success of your project. You achieve value through accelerated time-to-productivity, flexible and effective resource allocation, higher retention rates, consistency of skills and process, more efficient knowledge transfer and the ability to focus on results rather than staff management. We achieve value through team expansion and development and by growing a mature and trusted partnership with you.

Our clients achieve measurable value in time, cost and quality

This state agency needed help implementing ACA requirements and timelines while managing through changes in State government direction and policies. We activated a Managed Team of business consultants who were able to engage and disengage efficiently as project needs demanded. As a result, the client was able to meet all State and Federal mandated timelines at or under budget. This global Cloud IaaS provider needed to increase capacity quickly in response to a growing demand for its cloud services. The client engaged a Managed Team from Analysts to manage, develop and test software solutions for the client’s cloud computing infrastructure. Our team serves this client onsite and remotely, with flexible team sizing and skillsets.

And we work where you need us

Our consultants can work at your site, remotely, or in some combination of the two. Our remote teams work from our offices nationwide or from fully-staffed U.S. development centers that have been in operation since 1998.
