Build your cross-functional team with the Agile POD model

Experience unparalleled agility, seamless collaboration, and accelerated development lifecycle through the POD-based delivery model

Agile product-oriented development (POD) teams are self-contained, cross-functional delivery units comprising a dedicated Project Manager, developers, analysts, QA engineers, DevOps specialists, and technical leads. These teams bring a comprehensive set of skills to each stage of the development process.

The distinctive characteristic of the POD model is its focus on delivering expertise and results rather than individual team members. Unlike team augmentation, where the client handpicks individuals and manages the project directly, Agile PODs provide a more holistic solution where the service provider takes responsibility for team composition, capacity planning, and project management based on client requirements.

Benefits of the Agile POD model

Improved collaboration

Agile pod model fosters close collaboration, frequent communication, and transparency among team members, ensuring alignment and shared understanding.

Reduced bottlenecks

Each  team  has a dedicated pod leader responsible for team management  and client communication. This streamlines decision-making and ensures efficient product delivery across multiple iterations.

Cost optimization

Agile pods enable up to 40% faster delivery, efficient resource utilization, and reduced infrastructure costs, providing significant budget savings.

Increased customer satisfaction

The collaborative nature of pod teams, combined with frequent delivery and customer feedback loops, ensures that the final product fully meets end users’ expectations.

Autonomy

As a self-sufficient software development unit, pods can handle the complete release cycle,from planning and development phases to post-launch support and maintenance.

Enhanced efficiency

In Agile pod teams, each member of the development unit is accountable for their part of the work, which increases the team’s efficiency and the overall quality of the output.
