Complete Teams available to implement your digital Roadmap
Whether you are conceiving a new idea in the form of a tech product, evolving your business through digital transformation or in need of extra bandwidth to achieve all your tech milestones, it is fundamental to have a complete team alongside you.
Having amazing software engineers is indeed important, but only focusing on programming won’t be enough for your roadmap to progress since there’s much more to a digital solution than the code behind it. To ensure the proper execution of your digital roadmap, professionals from different sub-domains of technology are required to work together.
For a Squad to flourish, it will need UX & UI related roles to research your target customers and design the interfaces of your solution, product related roles to properly define the features and its requirements, a great team of engineers to code it and the technical support roles such as QA and DevOps Engineers to work respectively in testing and enabling the infrastructure of your solution.
End to End Digital Solutions
Having trouble with the conception of digital solutions that generate real value? Are you lacking the necessary technical know-how to implement your digital roadmap? Or is the upkeep and continuous evolution of your current solutions that has been a challenge?
At Luby, our Extended Tech Teams are ready to take care of the whole life cycle of your digital solution or engage just in a specific phase. From conception to maturity, you can rely on our team’s expertise to remove critical bottlenecks, increase your delivery bandwidth and even increase the number of professionals on the go so different aspects of your solution can be worked on in parallel.
And it does not matter if your organization has no technological expertise or an actual department for it, in both scenarios an Extended Tech Team will be beneficial as they work as an extension of your current organization, adapting to your specific needs, autonomously managing their incremental deliveries while providing full transparency of your Roadmap’s progress.
What is an Extended Tech Team?
An Extended Tech Team is a group of professionals specialized in different roles working from outside of your organization to help you deliver your digital roadmap. They are always composed of software engineers, product owners and designers, with additional roles being added as needed or if previously requested.
Since these professionals are proficient in agile methodologies and already used to working alongside one another, they instantly bring more efficiency to your delivery bandwidth by freeing up your internal key resources while saving overall onboarding time, which can take up to several weeks with new employees.
And for specific industries, the assigned extended team already possess years of experience in its endemic solutions, so they already understand most of the business rules of the digital products they will help you implement inside of your organization. With that, the team decreases the overall ramp up time of their work and in some instances even guides your internal stakeholders about the best course of action for the delivery of particular features.
Benefits of Luby’s Extended Tech Teams?
More than 1000 digital projects in a little over 20 years of existence, for clients working in different industries, both domestically and internationally.
But what exactly sets Luby apart from the competition in Extended Tech Teams?
For every customer, we provide a dedicated project manager who oversees the team’s day-to-day progress, workflow and reports to you or to your designated internal stakeholder as often as needed, to ensure process transparency and alignment with your company’s strategic goals.
Our teams work remotely while adapting to your organization’s schedule, business hours, time zones, internal processes and softwares of choice, so compliance does not become an issue for the delivery of your tech projects.
Luby’s IT experts are all fully proficient in Agile Methodologies and have a mutual understanding of the project’s overall requirements from successfully working together on similar engagements, therefore quickly integrating into your development process, however specific it may be.
Is an Extended Tech Team Ideal for Your Organization?
Although companies from all sizes, industries and stages of the digital transformation can benefit greatly from having an Extended Tech Team, there are situations in which this model can be replaced by the traditional outsourcing models or others in which thrives, so here’s a few key questions to have in mind:
Is the scope of your tech project unclear?
Does your Roadmap require multiple teams working in parallel?
Has your strategic goals quickly shifted to closer quarters and you don’t have the bandwidth?
Is putting together a tech team something out of your company’s main expertise?
Has your team been fully focused on critical projects and you cannot assign them more work without jeopardizing quality?
Is the lack of specific know-how from your in-house team delaying your digital roadmap?
If the answer to one or more of these questions is Yes, then your organization is definitely going to benefit from an Extended Tech Team.
This engagement model is all about providing scalability alongside flexibility, which becomes the ideal model for open scope engagements, delivery of multiple parallel projects or even just a single project that does not justify increasing internal capacity.

The Pros & Cons of Extended Tech Teams
Here’s what every executive or manager should have in mind before deciding on moving forward to an engagement with an external tech team:
Open Scope Done Right
Since the team is multidisciplinary, they can support your organization not only in the delivery but also assessing what exactly needs to be addressed in each project;
No Internal Management
As the team works autonomously and we provide a project manager to interact with your stakeholders, you don’t need to worry about the management of the team.
Sourcing Cost Effectiveness
The model is much cheaper than assembling and managing and internal team to accommodate the new tech demands;
Enjoy rates up to 30% lower than local IT talent with nearshore remote teams;
Less Control over the Code
Since the teams are managed autonomously, the code itself is written according to what our tech leads find is the best for your solution, so they won’t necessarily follow your organization’s practices;
No Candidate Vetting
In order to provide full scalability and flexibility to each demand, our teams are assigned according to the best fit to each demand and not by an internal interview with the client’s stakeholders;
Not Efficient for Small and Short Projects
Since this option is all about capacity, the engagement model is measured in hours available and not the scope to be delivered. When the scope is simple and straightforward the organization will still need to consume all the provided hours.
