What are the important questions you need to ask yourself before setting up or managing an existing in-house Salesforce Development Services team? Here are some questions I have heard from discussions with colleagues and customer during my time managing software businesses. It is common across all software applications and industries where organisations are always looking for cost effective development service solutions which delivers a quality result.

• What is the experience level requirement for technical staff and what industry should they have worked in prior to joining the team?

• How do I train these resources and keep them producing quality outcomes?

• Would I require specialist consultants’ roles such as Architects, Business Analysts, Senior Developers, application Developers, UI/UX developer, Scrum masters or testers? The list goes on!

• How many of each resource would service our organisational needs?

• Can I employ graduates from a local university or even outsource this whole services?

• What is the best approach? How do I establish a function which services the organisation’s needs and provide a quality outcome for the business?

Many organisations who require Salesforce Developers or Consultants usually start with the employment of a Certified Salesforce Consultant usually a Salesforce Administrator or Salesforce App developer to configure and/or make changes to the Salesforce product(s) that are in use. The company often believes that they will avoid paying hefty premiums of in-demand Salesforce Consultants on an adhoc or regular basis from the larger consulting firms. Yes, in the short-term organisations do achieve the peace of mind of having an in-house team and substantial cost advantages.

The downside is that in-house teams’ members often require the appropriate level of professional development and training to keep abreast of technology changes, new products, new features and releases. In-house staff also often require clear progression paths and motivation to stay at the organisation. Retention is sometimes very challenging when the organisation’s Salesforce Consulting Services is not a core business offerings.

There are many challenges facing organisations who have made the decision to setup a Salesforce Consulting Services or Salesforce Development Services Team as part of the IT department, PMO or standalone. I personally have fielded these questions and challenges coming from my colleagues across a variety of industries, prospects and clients.
