The Dedicated Team Model (DTM) is a business model which is commonly applied in outsourcing in general and in software testing in part, so in a wake of the interest to quality assurance outsourcing, it is important to inform people about the Dedicated Team Model.
The task of the Dedicated Team is to give the extension of the in-house team to the clients by means of outstaffing. It means that the Master Service Agreement should include some specific issues, such as, in part, the general structure of the team, the amount of work to be done and the terms of payment. If a client chooses such model, then it will be possible for him to pay more attention to accomplishing critical business tasks without employing more specialists. The team works in correspondence with the project needs, as the quality assurance dealer controls the team’s work (by means of checking the testing environment and measuring the team’s KPIs) and offers possible ways to make it better.
The Dedicated Team Model Is For You When:

— It is necessary to build strong long-lasting relationships between the quality assurance vendor and the client

— The client’s startup has a huge potential for scalability and its requirements can be easily changed

— The in-house quality assurance team is difficult to be trained or managed

— There is a need to minimize the quality assurance cost

— You would like to transparent the processes and to control, find and destroy all the bugs.

The Dedicated Team Model is one of the most widespread engagement models, which is applied more than in a half of startups.  Clients who apply for the Dedicated Team Model usually look for something more than just additional remote independent testing. They need specialists with a high level of motivation who will be ready to devote themselves to the project completely, for whom it will be important to achieve a perfect result (or at least to get as close to it as possible).
The Dedicated Team’s success depends on the service provider who should be responsible for resources, infrastructure, and the environment in correspondence with the client’s demands. Clients can trust the QA Madness project managers in choosing the dedicated team or interview them personally if they want, checking their resumes or CVs if there is something they want to know about them. If the team requires 10 engineers, they are not allocated at once. 2 or 3 quality assurance engineers are employed from the very start and then the team expands. QA manager also can (and in most cases should) be appointed to monitor and control the team’s work. QA Madness also allows clients to check the QA specialists before hiring them, providing some kind of test drive for the quality engineers. And if there is some hesitation, it is always possible for the client to take some time thinking about of all the pros and cons of working with this team.
