Training Programs & Strategies
A critical and often-overlooked part of any offshore software project is the
initial and on-going training needs of project team members. Depending on your
existing in-house training programs, Augmentive will work with you to deploy
your training programs or customize Augmentive programs for use by your
offshore team. This includes:
Augmentive begins any relationship with the analysis of the existing internal
training programs of our clients. Taking into account the training already
available, we will work with you to create the necessary training programs for
your project team. Depending on the level of knowledge transfer and the depth
of product understanding necessary to be an integral part of your development
team, training may occur onshore, offshore or both. It is important to
understand that the time and expense of training will go down as the experience
and domain knowledge increase within your offshore group.
Augmentive conducts process training with your project team to ensure
acceptance and compliance with your development process. The purpose of this
training is to make sure that each team member understands his or her role,
responsibilities, and appropriate hand-offs at each stage in the development
lifecycle. Augmentive believes that buy-in and understanding of the development
process is a key factor in a cohesive, well executed distributed development
Product Training and Knowledge Transfer
Augmentive will recruit team members that meet your experience requirements.
However, we also recognize that each each new team member may need extensive
product training. Depending on the amount of domain expertise required for
their job function, team members will participate in product training sessions
specifically geared towards expanding their domain awareness.
Continuous Technical Training
Augmentive encourages and facilitates the continued education of our employees
in order to provide you with up-to-date skill sets for your projects. We
provide access to e-learning tools and dedicate 5% of each person's work time
to job skill training. In addition, if you need assistance in providing
technical training to your project team, Augmentive will assist you in
assembling and designing appropriate training programs.
