Creating the internal IT department responsible for building and maintaining of software created for company needs involves a lot of challenges. The strong team leader is needed here.

There is no one left in the team who had enough charisma and technological competencies to take charge of all projects of IT department. Often it is the time, when clients come to us with a proposal to take over the programming service of their companies. Own IT department faces challenges of the programming employees rotation. Also changing with time demand for programming services is a problem. It may turns out that it is the best to make half of team redundant in terms of costs. After some time internal IT team becomes a group of specialists in one particular technology. It may be difficult situation for the company when a new technology which should be implemented, will come on the market.
