Fear: what if outstaffers work too slowly? What to do then?
At the start of the project, the productivity of employees is only gaining momentum - this applies to both full-time fighters and outstaff teams. Do not rush to form your opinion while the processes are being set up. Experienced contractors know that all potential problems usually appear in the first weeks, so they are especially attentive to the project at the beginning.
The term, according to the results of which it is possible to draw conclusions about the employee, strongly depends on the role. For example, a designer or tester shows the result faster - usually after two sprints. In fact, we are ready to look at an employee for up to three months and not cut it off the shoulder. If it doesn't fit, please replace it. But this doesn't happen often.
