Common Issues for Staff Augmentation

Common Issues for Staff Augmentation

In terms of outsourcing specific functions of a business or entire projects, staff augmentation is one of the most preferred models.

Yet that doesn’t mean that it consists of no challenges. 

There is no magic solution when it comes to outsourcing business projects and processes. So in order to relieve some of the uncertainty, today we’re going to highlight some of the most common issues of staff augmentation.

First issue: the client is unsure about remote collaboration

Common Issues for Staff AugmentationStaff augmentation helps to shore up staffing levels that lack specific skills and ultimately quickening the project process and building new solutions.

But you first need to know the issues that you want to solve, and how you want to solve them. Only then can a business decide on whether staff augmentation is the right fit or not.

Second issue: general skills may not be enough

To make sure that there is continuity of work, some software dev agencies employ workers with general sets of skills instead of workers highly skilled in particular areas and platforms.

Yet a company that specializes in staff augmentation tends to provide a team of talented professionals with concrete experience and expertise in particular technologies.

Third issue: the assumed culture clash

Common Issues for Staff AugmentationNot every company understands the importance of the cultural question. Perhaps the staffing provider neglects to verify soft skills like communication. Or perhaps the tech company doesn’t quite understand or define the standards of the culture that they want to create and maintain.

The better staff augmentation companies out there do what other great companies do in general, which is to consciously develop a company culture. And when these companies have cultivated an identity and culture, this will only help in the collaboration with companies that are looking to utilize staff augmentation.
