What Is Team Extension Model?

Team Extension Model

Team extension is a strategy for integrating highly skilled technology professionals into an existing in-house development team to enhance the value of specific projects. This approach leverages external expertise in the extended team model to bolster the internal staff, particularly when there's a shortage of certain software development skills needed for complex tasks.
