8. Building Software Teams > Goals and Profiles

Goals and Profiles

Taking a planned approach to building a software team is very similar to building software itself. First of all, you must determine your business “requirements” and establish a vision of the team you want, just as with software you need a vision that is aligned with business and marketing requirements. Next, you need to develop a design or blueprint of the team you envision, just as with software you need a design. Finally, you need to implement that design to build a team and iteratively improve it over time, just as software gets built, maintained, and enhanced.

Whether you want to build a new team or improve an existing one, the first step is to lay out a vision and a plan. This section describes how you can use metrics to establish targets for new or existing teams.
