Staff Augmentation and Capacity Expansion
Do you need to expand your team without bringing in a full-time resource? Or, do you require multiple skill sets that would best be filled by an existing team, rather than hiring for each skill set? Origin Eight supplements your existing team, giving you direct access to our staff, while providing the infrastructure, best-practices and architectual expertise that you need to scale and successfully complete your project.
- Client-accessible capacity expansion - you can have as much or as little direct access to our team as you desire.
- Project management personnel (if desired) and a single point of contact.
- Supervision, accountability, coverage by multiple staff members, and access to previously-vetted talent.
- Multiple areas of specialization that go beyond what any individual that you could hire internally.

Training and Mentorship for Technical Teams
Learning by Doing: Mentored Sprints
We believe the best technical learning happens when everyone is actively working in a team towards a common goal, learning by doing, producing tangible results and in-house knowledge of what is being built. When learning a platform like Drupal or WordPress, and especially when considering the build of a platform of which you want to take ownership in-house, a mentored sprint model is ideal.
In this model, we do not attempt to take the place of self-study from the multitude of information online at Drupal.org and instructional sites such as buildamodule.com, but rather guide that study by daily Scrum-style meetings, bi-weekly sprint planning and review meetings, and task-based support requests.
This mentored sprint model is used at the annual Drupal conference, which many of our team members have attended and found very useful. We also use it with our clients, who often have an in-house developer who is not at all or less familiar with Drupal, needs best practice advice, guidance, support, and the ability to delegate.
We also regularly put together training material and demos for non-technical clients who just want to know how best to use their website.
