True to its name, a software development remote team is a team that is responsible for developing, maintaining, and updating the company’s software.
When we think about a dedicated software development remote team, we will think about a group of developers who don’t only focus on optimizing software and mobile applications for internal uses. Instead, we also think about a group of people who dedicate themselves to giving the company updates and responding to the users’ feedback on commercial apps.
The question that we need to answer in this article is, “Signs of a dedicated software development team?” In other words, “To what extent can we think about the word “dedication”?” Here are the answers:
They are always visible.
“Visible” is another word to illustrate the software development team’s willingness to update the users. Typically, a dedicated software development team doesn’t only update the software or mobile apps they create with bug fixes and other minor improvements. Instead, they also update the necessary parts that involve the software’s usability.
A dedicated software development team doesn’t only concentrate on giving feedback about debugging the software or mobile apps that they create and test. Instead, they also update the users on whether a certain function of the software will be updated (and when), how will the user interface be different in the most recent updates, and so on.
When a user approaches the software development team, the user will feel welcomed as they ask things related to the software updates and maintenance phases that they don’t understand. At some points, the software development personnel would even educate the users until they’ve solved the help tickets.
They frequently attend software development classes.
The second point we’re going to make in this article is that a dedicated software development team doesn’t only focus on how they meet their team’s KPI in the company. They also proactively work for their professional development.
Attending software development classes is one of the proactive things that any software development team member can do, at least for themselves. They keep working on their certifications and courses when they’re not working or updating the systems.
In doing so, they keep the motivation within their team members. Since they sincerely believe in life-long learning (regardless of whether that value becomes the company’s value), they always listen attentively to what other people think about their creations (again, see point #1).
The rotation between team members is rare.
Now, look at the word “dedication” according to the team members. Here, we mean “changes from one member to another” when we mention “rotation.” So, we can say that a software development team member is dedicated to their work when the rotation is not so frequently happening.
It happens because a dedicated software development team focuses on maximizing and nourishing their already-existing talents. As a result, these teams seldom experience exhausting internal and external conflicts. They can finish their tasks way before the deadlines, and when they need to communicate their needs to other departments, they can resolve the issues effectively.
