Strategic Steps to Launch a Software Wing in a Traditional Engineering Company Edit
A 3-Year Blueprint
In our '3-Year Blueprint for Engineering Firms', we chart a transformational journey from foundational groundwork to mature software proficiency. The first year centers on team assembly and immersion in both internal and client-driven projects, setting the scene for rapid team expansion and diversified projects in the subsequent year. This phase includes fortifying client relations and initiating a research & development division. By the third year, the firm reaches its envisioned scale of 50 - 500 software professionals, with an established R&D division fostering innovation. This blueprint ensures that traditional engineering firms evolve into tech-savvy entities, seamlessly integrating software solutions with their core competencies.
