We're practitioners of the Agile methodology and use it to manage client projects as well as our own. We use a mix of Scrum and Kanban to helps us reduces the time to market and increase our productivity.
Our engineers and project managers are veterans of the software industry and are very familiar with leveraging Agile to deliver the right product, continuously evaluating time and cost as they move through the work. We use velocity, burndown and burnup charts to measure our productivity and drive resource acquisition and allocation.
We report regularly on the status of the project's initiatives to provide insight and ensure that our client's time and resources are being utilized optimally. This helps the team contrast the project's regular output with the overall desired outcomes.
We include our clients in every step of the development process with complete transparency. Our network of professional and highly-skilled consultants will serve as a wellspring of knowledge, advising on and educating clients about design decisions as well as technical implementation.
We make time to ensure that all processes and initiatives are well documented as this is an important part of agile software development projects, especially in environments where the team is distributed and the work is self-directed.
for new clients
Schedule a consultation where we'll discuss your project goals and begin modeling concepts and workflows.
First, we'll discuss your project needs, including your development timeline and engineering budget, as well as your deployment and maintenance expectations.
If time permits, or in subsequent consulting sessions, we'll begin to collaboratively model your project's concepts, entities, behaviors, rules, and workflows.
Finally, we'll consider the needs of the team, i.e. project scope, technology expertise, infrastructure needs, management, monitoring, maintenance, etc.
Next, we'll recommend, qualify, and document, the technology choices needed for the project's successful implementation, which will guide future development.
Agile project management is an iterative approach to planning, guiding, and managing projects, especially software development projects. Agile projects are executed in sprints, i.e. short focused work cycles often referred to as iterations. Each sprint or iteration is reviewed and critiqued by the team, including the project stakeholders, at the end of each sprint creating a consistent feedback loop. Insights gathered through feedback is used to determine what the next steps in the project should be.
The main benefit of Agile project management is its ability to respond to issues as they arise throughout the course of the project given its iterative nature. Making a necessary change to a project at the right time, or changing direction entirely, can save prevent waste and help deliver a successful project on time and within budget. Agile project management helps project stakeholders reduce risk, have more control and insight, and see a faster return on investment with a shorter path to "ready to market" software.
