Overview

Here is a scenario that occurs almost every day. A business owner or technology manager understands the importance of having an agile development team and being able to deliver projects on time. They are familiar with the growing pressure to quickly accomplish goals and business needs with technology solutions.

This trend grows with each passing year, so this business owner, or technology manager decides that having a developer or development team is a serious need for their company, and they leverage HR to assist with the search. However, there is a problem. Like so many other businesses, they are operating on a tight budget with looming deadlines.

How do they get their projects completed without spending a lot of money, while still receiving an exceptional product?
