Topic: Growth from a singleton to the small company

Greetings, I Understand that alone it does not turn out to implement at all all those plans which I have. Now I cooperate with an unlimited amount of freelancers, but it is irregular, and process is delivered not so well. I feel that competences of project management to me as to the programmer, does not suffice. Now full courses of type https://skillbox.ru/sibirix where promise for N hours and 40 to make of you PM, ground under "". There is still a course from Netologii more than for 150K. And . . It is all generally works? Probably, there is something, what it is possible to esteem independently about project management and frames? Especially in application to small offices. Materials on the Internet full, but entropy above an average: "the Youth does not respect old men,  wants to write the book, to create " - Platon (?)

S> It is all generally works? Extremely avoid any courses and trainings! It ! How to control the company of remote workers?: 1. Programmers should have a task list. Optimally piecework or hourly. Optimally daily  for everyone. 2. At advertisers the plan of daily operation. Which they should fulfill and send the list of the fulfilled tasks. 3. DAILY REPORTS! 4. The administrator, the unique person with whom you should feed. However and it it is possible to load with the small daily additional task. Good luck!

Re: Growth from a singleton to the small company

As the person the last two years continuously trained on similar, including mentioned, courses I have what to tell here: it is not necessary to expect from them any sacral knowledge. Except for any commercial secrets all information on any subjects is in open access. These courses organize for you educational process. It is a lot of. At first, the motivation is extremely important. Talks "yes I am simple on the Internet I esteem" in 99 % of cases remain talks or will be reduced to perusal of any article. Secondly, it is the reticulated process. You have plan, a format, , the instructor. Thirdly, it is not necessary to be trained generally there where there are no homeworks. It is very strong factor which does not allow you meaningly or subconsciously  boring/not clear/uninteresting.

S> Now I cooperate with an unlimited amount of freelancers, but it is irregular, and process is delivered not so well. With freelancers basically it is impossible to deliver process, working with the restricted budget. Freelancers "one-time" - today he responds and quickly does the job, tomorrow it saws someone's else project in a work involving all hands or he sits with  to Goa, "". It is clear, if you pay to the freelancer of 30-50 dollars at an o'clock with such it is already possible to build processes. A level of responsibility above. But if it is ready to pay such , to work with constant , instead of with the freelancer easier. S> I feel that competences of project management to me as to the programmer, does not suffice. Yes, does not suffice. But even more you do not have not enough money that was whom to control (freelancers it is not counted). Therefore first of all it is necessary to be either the good programmer or the good expert in marketing or something an average to hammer together initiating money which all leave on  to the first constant employee. S> It is all generally works? Yes, works. Only besides, when is whom to control, except freelancers. On freelancers though the genius of management deliver, it will be powerless, considering the budget. S> it is possible, there is something, what it is possible to esteem independently about project management and frames? Especially in application to small offices. At first it is necessary to get these frames. As it is possible to control those who is primary out of a zone of your influence/management.

It were the present courses on some tens hours. For example, on control of products. From 20 teachers the PARCEL OF RUBBISH carried 19 (all but Krasinsky, it is finite)).

Re: Growth from a singleton to the small company

Well, here it is difficult to me to comment, I from courses of Netologii took Excel and to a web analyst. There all was normal. When you select to whom to go to study, it is obvious that primary value has to whom. , for example, hardly can carry a parcel of rubbish on project management. __> it there were present courses on some tens hours.

The joint venture> Zavertajlov, for example, hardly can carry a parcel of rubbish on project management. It not carries bosh. It from a category "kindergarten". For beginning managers it is possible to listen. It works in a web stage. Fulfills typical small  under requirements of the exterior customer (sites). At it, basically, expertize ))) About it also tells. Also a manner at it specific. Probably, in a province it is norms. But in Moscow  manners is faugh. Developers will be concerns, as to the ensign.

Did not buy such courses from the Russian-speaking. But I recommend such variant, I tried it: there is a site lynda.com is a daughter linkedin. 50 dollars in  there pay and look all that want free of charge. There there are jobs for examination. Some hares are killed at once: * you pump over English * you receive knowledge from real pros * and all is almost free (50 usd/month). It is possible even to find  and then the first month will be free. As month comes to an end,  new  on the same , specify the data of a new credit card, and again look month free of charge. In model lynda it is favourable to authors of course to do course more compactly and was more informatively because the more other courses of this author look, the more author earns. In model  - to it it is favourable as it is possible to inflate more strongly course, after all to ask for 40 hour course 40, than for 5 sentry much easier. Before course purchase after all you do not learn that it on 80 % consists of water.

It is impossible to solve a problem if you are engaged not to it, and than that in another. You do not have not enough money to take in staff pair of sensible children on . Here this problem. You can save up money, but it not the decision. Constant incomes which allow to employ them are necessary to you. You think, if you transit courses on a manual of projects you the automatic machine will begin to earn more? I think was not present. It is necessary to begin with that realization why you cannot earn more and as it to correct.

It is necessary to begin with that realization why you cannot earn more and as it to correct. You are right, but only partially. The income all the same is, but programmers, without losing pants, not to employ, it yes. But I began not with programmers, not they are necessary to me first of all. I already started to form a team . Now with one person I work as though part time, with one - on the full rate (remote  type). One and a half week. The Programmer-web designer part time nevertheless will be necessary to me, it is good that  is cheaper  Basically, in process of dialogue with these people in a half-rate/rate mode I understand that it really is more convenient, than simply with freelancers. They, of course, also are freelancers, and there is a raised risk of their leaving, but  already it is not necessary to write, to me probably carried with these two - learn to understand me from a half-word, their qualification I tighten gradually there, where gaps. Now there is a sensation that in process of interaction with a command of 2-3 persons (and still the wife helps!) experience comes in a half-year by itself. The task #1 - to force them to benefit and remove from me loading - is already fulfilled, the effect began after one-three days of training of everyone (brought up to date). Tasks #2 and #3 - to force them to study thoroughly the project, to live it, and to teach them to interact effectively with each other passing me if it is required. So I see the nearest plan.

Generally on the person depends. The professional is that who is able to solve tasks and successfully and stablly solves. If not the professional freelancer as though its risk of the lowest rather salaries is implemented in an amount-quality of dips on tasks. And this problem can be solved spending the valuable time  them more, time while is not present money to employ the professional. Clearly as "professional" not panacea and too it is necessary to track it on the elementary at least KPI, all people are subject "moral ". So if "give and grow lazy" it will be possible to pass to payment on a fix + percent with a binding of a percentage part to KPI under tasks: productivity, there, on  (amount), efficiency of execution ... (Quality). In corporate  still bugs consider as reverse productivity with coefficient... But in small-scale business somehow it is necessary minimum to hold all this bureaucracy, to push bugs into the column "efficiency" is better, and that only the Main thing it is clear for making the largest, transparently, to explain to employees that feelings of injustice did not arise, and that  grows, and these are the big overhead charge

I of years to 15 crying the salary to hired employees, from 1 to 5 persons at various times. Normally all works, it is just necessary to be able to control people.

Those who asked less 100 thousand in month were not able to program at all and had the negative labor productivity. To me was to make faster most, than to achieve from them task performance. From 100 thousand programmers of level  (not from Moscow, it is finite) began.

And they at first, are not able to program, secondly, work for 3 hours per day. Thirdly, the normal programmer goes to large office on interesting projects and  a packet.

It is necessary to raise in times  to take without problems in staff of sensible children and that to itself normally remains. It is clear that it cannot during the moment happens, but it is necessary to concentrate on this task. My judgement.

Re: Growth from a singleton to the small company

Interesting subject. By probably, such problem I will be anxious in the long term. For itself this question while so answered: if there is no income to employ to itself the good expert and to give to it in charge of the project it is necessary to use services of freelancers, but not to give to them in development of the finished settings of tasks. Only development of new ideas, technologies in rough. Sometimes there are ideas to which do not know as to be risen  never was engaged in it or time will spend much for a new feature, but whether it will be not clear sense from implementation and it . Here let the freelancer tries to implement it in rough, and in case of success to take its development for a basis and to alter, as it is required to the project. As a result minimization of expenditures: Minimum of engaging and payment to the employee, in case of disappearance of the developer you will not receive "a black box" with the code, you do not depend on qualification of the assistant  the code itself you will overwork, you will make itself the correct integration with the project, and the main thing you will spare time for experiments and errors with new technology. Certainly, this method approaches only for a Prosiberian salmon which grows from panties on one person and already demands one and a half-two developer. On a subject assistants-programmers are considered only. It is strange, did not mention the assistant for attending, advancement, project testing. Such () manages much more cheaply and liberates a lot of time. That only there is time expended on correspondences with clients, attempt of playback of errors, preparations  actions, product lighting in sots-networks and  what hands do not reach at all.

To illuminate a product in  (if a product such that it works) or at profile forums (if a specialized product) I will be itself because it again possibility to be pulled about with users, or potential users, and it is normally interesting.

V> that is - that technically hinders them to take your code, hardly to change GUI and to lay out under a new name a clone of your project? I at all do not give source codes (on a site - I will give, but not on a product). There is a lot of an accompanying operation: a content (creation of articles, site filling), transfer, testing (continuous), update of screenshots, the other drawing and , educational videos and . . Probably, in due course to hiring and the person for development of components of my software then I will produce only a part of source codes (the most basic - a frame, but it it is necessary to select still it). A product it not only the program, and a little simply to write the code. I noted that many good products differ from many bad support, first of all the documentation. At me not  application, and a complex product which can be used both freelancers-web designers, and developers of a web software. Here I and cannot attract the second user group to the right degree while. I as will come on products from the adjacent niches, at all enormous sites-encyclopedias on their product. At me the product is not worse, but it is necessary to make as.
