How to find a dedicated team?
Well, you’ve decided to hire a dedicated team. How to do it and where should you look for them? It is pretty obvious that to find a dedicated team you should find an MSP. So, we’ll tell how to find a reliable outsourcing partner. At first, you should define what kind of team you need. Do you need a dedicated development team or DevOps team, or maybe a mixed team? After that, find out what companies provide such teams.
You might check worldwide ratings, for example, Clutch. Usually, the top companies from such ratings are reliable. On such websites, you might find the evaluation of the company’s work from previous customers and some feedback. It is great if you are able to ask previous customers directly. Maybe, some of your partners have already referred to an MSP and can recommend some companies. If it is impossible, try to find as many reviews as you can. Find the MSP’s website and find out what services can you receive. Also, you might find the links to the previous clients or successful cases.
When you choose the MSP company, contact it and get acquainted with the team. You might have interviews with the Sales Manager, Project Manager and key specialists in the team. Of course, you shouldn’t talk with all team members, but such interviews are quite a good practice.
The next step is hiring. You should create a contract and NDA. It will be better if you have a lawyer and will consult with him about documents. After the paper signing part is over, the project starts. Discuss the strategy and create a plan with your team of specialists. After that, you can delegate the project and wait for the result. Sometimes it’s the hardest part for business owners, especially for the first business or startup. But delegating some business parts to the professionals is a beneficial decision and you shouldn’t worry about the result. The skilled professionals really know better.
Wrap up: the dedicated team is a great choice

This is convenient – you might hire the team on the project and then you part ways without any hard feelings and they will be there if you need them again.
This is cost-efficient – you'll pay only for the project and can split the payment into parts. For example, pay after some milestones.
This is fast – the experienced team will be quickly diving into the project and make things well.
Thus said, you will have a great quality of work according to your time and budget. Of course, there are some risks but all of them are about the right choice of an MSP. You should pay attention and choose meticulously on the early stages and after all, you can relax and delegate your IT projects to the professionals.
