Behind every successful software product is an efficient, well-structured team. Unfortunately, many companies fall at the first hurdle when choosing a structural model for their software development teams. Inefficient processes, poor communication, and a lack of clear objectives are among the common pitfalls they experience.
However, these issues can be addressed by selecting an approach where everyone is on the same page and working synchronously rather than in silos. Software development is a dynamic process, with team members working on multiple fronts simultaneously. Defining a structure ensures everyone is aligned towards a common goal and delivers effective outcomes.
This white paper covers the standard software development team structures and aims to lead companies toward choosing one that suits their requirements. It further explores why the agile development model is a cut above traditional models and what principles to implement to ensure maximum efficiency.
