Today’s question comes from Paul in our own development team. Paul asks,

When is the right time to hire more people, either inhouse or as consultants to manage projects in order to save time and gain leverage within the business?

Working directly on projects has given me such a huge education The value to me in personal growth in doing those projects directly has been huge.

I can’t help but wonder that if we had hired a local consultant, would we have experienced the same bureaucratic delays and maybe had fewer iterations of the design?


This is a great question.

This is the classic insource versus outsource question that companies the world over deal with on a regular basis.

In my view, if the goal is to grow the capability within the organization, you can’t accomplish that with rented talent.
