Book a virtual workshop to help prioritise your ongoing development work with remote experts

As the world responds to the global coronavirus pandemic, businesses are required to quickly migrate workforces from in-office to fully remote. This is the world's largest scale forced experiment in remote working.

Many businesses do not have the ability to manage their teams remotely, are struggling to maintain productivity, or their offshore development teams may have been taken offline completely.  It has never been more important to have a contingency workforce available to supplement existing capabilities.

Book your free virtual prioritisation workshop

To help, we've brought together recognised experts and are making them available to UK businesses via a free virtual 2-hour workshop.

Capita Scaling Partner is working with Distributed, a tech start-up, to accelerate the adoption of globally remote software development teams for clients.

What you’ll gain from the prioritisation workshop 

The meeting will be held over Microsoft Teams. Together, we will deep dive into your existing workload to help prioritise and clarify a brief and scope of work. We will:  

  • discuss your ongoing software development, DevOps, software maintenance and upcoming digital initiatives
  • identify potential skill gaps in the team
  • review spikes in BAU DevOps or lost resource capacity because of furloughed team or offshore development teams going offline
  • identify areas of high distraction and low value using our prioritisation framework to help you gain clarity on the scope of the work enabling delegation of work to flexible, on demand distributed development teams.

Questions and answers 

In our recent webinar, we supported delegates with answers to the questions:


Q. How do you demonstrate ROI?

Callum Adamson: “The ROI when working with Distributed is simple – there are no fixed overheads. It’s a flexible team augmentation solution that expands and contracts based on your need, with faster higher quality throughput than any comparable service.” 


Q. How do you work with your customers?

Callum Adamson: “We’d set you up on the platform and you’d get a dedicated project manager who’d take a brief from you.  You’ll get timings and costs for that as fast as you’d like. When you press go, you’ll see your elastic team assemble on the platform and you’ll be able to see each piece of work being delivered with transparency on the platform as it happens – it's very simple.” 


Q. When you’re working with teams, how do you keep the platform secure?

Callum Adamson: “We have an incredibly high grade of security. A couple of our customers are Mastercard and RBS and we’ve worked on first party data with them. We have varying levels of security based on customer need. Not every customer needs .gov or financial security level measures. We have been quoted as having the highest security level protocols of any partner selected by CTO of WPP Group.”
