Extended Team

A business practice that involves hiring external professionals or a third-party company to provide specific services or expertise to support a company's operations or projects.

It is a flexible approach that allows businesses to quickly scale their capabilities without the long-term commitment and administrative overhead associated with hiring full-time employees. Staff augmentation is often used in the context of IT, software development, and other technical fields, but it can be applied to various industries.
