Where project outcomes require particular skills for a specific period of time, Jumar’s ability to deploy its own technical specialists can deliver considerable savings over the traditional approach of using contractors.
We estimate that savings of 20% can be made by following this proven method of providing anything from one individual through to teams of specialists.
As Jumar employees you benefit from a focused and committed mind-set on your projects while also having the advantage of resources receiving technical and personal development support from Jumar head-office.
It also means that there is no need for you to increase headcount – a particular benefit to clients who are under pressure to limit costs, or have other strategic reasons to limit permanent staff numbers.
Being an IT solution provider ourselves, we instinctively ensure a technical and cultural fit – especially if a particular resource has been deployed previously, as they bring valuable business knowledge with them. That specialist is also then potentially available for future projects, if needed, again retaining business knowledge within your organisation.
Jumar’s philosophy of developing close working relationships, enable us to gain an in-depth understanding of your environment, current and future requirements and working culture.
This allows us to proactively build up a pipeline of available specialists to ensure that we can meet anticipated demand, as we know how requirements will fluctuate over the life of your projects.
Upskilling an existing talent pool to deliver specific – or niche – technical capability can be time-consuming, costly and distracting.
This scenario is particularly common when a skill is not in plentiful supply in the marketplace, and can therefore not easily be addressed by the use of contractors.
Our experience in running training academies for new resources, has enabled us to provide this proven service to clients needing to bridge skills gaps in their existing staff base.
Academies are always bespoke, with our teams of technical specialists working with you to determine your project scope, and then build training plans and syllabuses to precisely ensure the required outcomes are delivered.
Crucial to the success of any academy is understanding the starting point, and we work closely with you to understand the existing level of aptitude/experience within your team.
Academies are run over the space of days, weeks or months depending on scope – and can be held at our own training facility or at your premises.
During the course, our trainers and those of carefully chosen partners – ensure:
- a consistent level of capability is developed across the team
- the team will become more productive, much more quickly
- all your strategic aims will be met
- your management involvement in administering, monitoring and day-to-day running of the academies is kept to a minimum.
We estimate that academies can accelerate productivity by more than a year when compared to comparative solutions (see our case study) and can be combined with our other offerings (for example the provision of Jumar specialists) to provide the precise capacity and capability required. Alternatively, they can be run in isolation in response to a specific need.
