ENGAGEMENT MODEL
An engagement model defines the type of
collaboration between a client and an outsourcing
partner. The type of engagement model you are
using determines the level of control
responsibility over the entire process. There are
three types of engagment model 1. Dedicated
Team Model 2. Time and Materials Model 3. Fixed
Price Model

DEDICATED TEAM MODEL
This type of model is beneficial for long-term
projects where requirements are dynamic. Lets
take an example. Assume you are an app
development company in the USA your in-house
team lacks the expertise to develop complex
applications. Its clear that hiring a team of
professionals in your country would require you
to empty your pockets. On the other hand, an
experienced team of mobile app developers in a
country like India will get things done for you
at 70 less cost.

TIME MATERIAL MODEL
This IT outsourcing model deals with payment on
the basis of effort time spent by the team. In
this model, your requirements budget should be
precisely defined. Lets continue with the
previous example considering that your hired
resource is working on your mobile app
encounters an issue. Now, based on this model the
expected time work will exceed the numbers
initially decided. Consequently, you will have to
pay more to your developer or development team.

FIXED PRICE MODEL
In the fixed price model, all risks are taken by
the hired resource. And the client prefers this
model the most as he gets the opportunity to pay
once the work is complete or the client is
satisfied. This type of model is useful for
short/medium sized projects. As a matter of fact,
this engagement model works best for small
projects with limited scope budget.

CONCLUSION
Coming back to the question - Which engagement
model is best for your business? Well, every
model has its own advantages disadvantages.
Therefore, if you have a short term project, it
would be a wise decision to choose the time and
material model. Whereas, if you have a long term
project with fixed requirements budget, the
fixed-cost model is the best. In case of a long
term project with no fixed requirements,
dedicated team model will suit your business
requirements.
