3 Ways to Improve Productivity of Your Development Team

by The Scalers Offshore Development Teams In India

The software development industry is one that thrives solely on high-speed evolution. Every other day, innovative products and services are brought to the market by companies that are hoping to gain a much-needed edge over their competitors.

However, this comes at a high cost. Firstly, due to the acute shortage of engineering talent, especially in the US and Western Europe, hiring the right workforce is an expensive affair. Their salaries, employee-centric benefits, workspace, and other admin costs amount to over 50% of the fixed costs of running the business. On the other hand, the cost of web and software development services itself is steadily rising.

In such a scenario, it only makes sense that every company takes the necessary steps to improve the efficiency and productivity of their development team. An increase in productivity means that the company can develop high-quality products and services within a defined time period.

So, how can you increase the efficiency of your development team? Let’s put aside project management and different tools for a moment – you’ve probably heard about them a dozen times, at least. Then what other innovative strategies and changes can you implement to ensure increased productivity? That’s exactly what we’ll discuss in this blog post!

1. Provide mentorship & continuous education

study conducted by Gartner showed that IT organizations across the globe spend over $1 trillion every year on their IT initiatives. Even spending 10% of that amount on training their existing employees can lead to a significant increase in the overall productivity of their software development team!

Many companies expect their employees to learn the latest technologies, skills, and programming languages on their own time and their own dime. However, the fundamental problem is this – they simply do not have the time, money, or even desire to take this upon themselves. The primary reason for this is that experienced developers often grow too comfortable with a specific coding language or technology.

This is where you must step up and promote an environment of learning and exploration, rather than letting your team become stagnant or disinterested. The process of continuous learning will not only introduce you to newer methods and ways of delivering world-class software but will also keep your development team excited and motivated.
