What is the difference between staff augmentation and project outsourcing?

The key difference between IT staff augmentation and project outsourcing is:

  • With staff augmentation, you augment your team with engineering staff provided by the IT staff augmentation services company and directly control the extended team.
  • With project outsourcing, you contract with a software development vendor to ship deliverables on a project, which means that the vendor is responsible for all outcomes and performs day to day management of the team.

How is IT staff augmentation different from dedicated development teams?

Although very similar, the IT staff augmentation and dedicated team models have some differences:

Staff Augmentation

Dedicated Team

Long-term vs short-term projects

IT staff augmentation services are more appropriate for short-term initiatives

Dedicated teams are a better fit for long-term projects

→ Hire dedicated developers

Who is responsible for business analysis and project management activities?

Your organization (unless your software development staff augmentation services entail provision of a business analyst or project manager???)

A good dedicated team provider will appoint a team leader who will take care of business analysis and project management activities.

Who is responsible for the risk of the team falling apart, conflict resolution, and overall team cohesion and unity?

Your organization

Dedicated team provider (the technical leads on each team)
