Building the Right Team for the Right Solutions

Team building is the foundation of success for businesses — from the C-suite all the way down to individual projects. Teams should be built as specifically as possible around projects for the right combination of skill sets and experience.

In “Filling Your C-Suite With The Right Technology People,” Daniel Newman emphasizes the importance of being able to tap into the right talent pools to build the best teams:

Associated skills for your next c-suite executives may include a background in engineering, prior experience in a functional tech role, and access to a demonstrable network of tech-savvy professionals. After all, one of the hallmarks of a great leader is his or her ability to tap into additional, high-quality talent. Determine the specific skills you’ll need to achieve your company’s short- and long-term technology goals.

Finding the Right Skills

LMS is a different kind of company. We don’t just approach projects as jobs. We build our teams around specific client projects. Our formula for recruiting technical teams has been successful, and we use it to deliver tangible results for our partners.

It’s important to find the right candidates. One engineer will not fit all solutions. Software engineers might specialize in content systems, micro-services, UI/UX — a different emphasis for each individual. We build teams based on the specific requirements of any project. The first problem we solve for our clients is recruiting the right team of problem-solvers.

Quality and Collaboration

There are other aspects of great teams: a clear focus on the problem at hand and the ability to collaborate. The trouble with being an innovator is you can end up solving for things that never actually play a role in the customer experience. Our teams focus on the core of the customer experience rather than the outliers. Every step in a project must be relevant and tangible for our clients.

Bigger Partnerships

Building the right team means building a team that can collaborate with other teams. LMS not only specializes in building the right internal teams, we have the capability to provide long-term project management while collaborating with dozens of outside partners.  Learn how we can provide your business with best-in-class customer experience and technology solutions.
