Our dedicated teams can be self-contained delivery teams that provide or extend any in-house capability, or they can become an extension of existing teams, augmented with specific skillsets as needed.
A core aspect of the Headforwards approach to building a dedicated team or teams is that the client is an integral part of the recruitment process. This is truly a long-term partnership solution. These teams will be actively involved in understanding their clients technical and business roadmaps and will be focused on those goals for the long term.
Because these dedicated teams are also an integral part of Headforwards, clients benefit from all the knowledge sharing and working practices that are a part of our philosophy; an Agile approach to development, techniques such as pair and mob programming and our internal knowledge sharing and communities of practice events.
When clients and teams work closely together, communication becomes much easier. Our developers feel confident approaching the client with issues, and the client isn’t afraid to tell us if we’re going down the wrong path.
The majority of our dedicated teams are focused on software development although we have also built teams that focus on other areas of business such as Customer Service and Product Management.
Our belief in the value of dedicated teams and our ability to recruit and manage them to exceed client’s expectations is what lies at the core of Headforwards’ reputation in software development.
- Teams recruited specifically to answer a client’s needs
- Dedicated teams build client knowledge and strengthen the working relationship
- Flexible resourcing with additional skills available at short notice
- Explore the benefits of working in an Agile way without needing to transform internal practices
- Timeframe – 12 months plus
This client-focussed approach makes working with Headforwards especially attractive to CTOs and CIOs in larger corporations and organisations.
Our principles and values stay the same no matter how a client chooses to work with us.
