Development Time shortage resolution via team extension
A company has faced serious competition in the financial sector (mortgage banking). It was known that a leading competitor is supposed to release a new series of financial products for a core business. To reduce a time-to-market time in the development of a new market analysis system that is used as a basis for new financial products establishment, it was necessary to extend a current core development team with extra members for a certain period of time to overcome some development delays.
The main issue is to pass the time consuming parts of the project without the necessity of explaining business critical logic and/or architectural solutions under the hood of the system. This is because it takes considerable effort to pass the knowledge on to new team members.
