We perceive the process of building dedicated software as a shared journey.
At each stage of this journey – from understanding the project goal and designing architecture to system implementation and maintenance – we use only the most effective tools. We choose and update them in a systematic manner.
Today, it is a set which is most effective in supporting agile approaches, including Event Storming, User Story Mapping, Domain Driven Design or Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. We have described them in the e-book “Software as a journey” – how to effectively implement software development projects.
By working in this way, we avoid typical project problems, increase the business effectiveness of your projects and ensure the safety of their successful completion.
At this stage, you will feel that we understand your needs and know who and why will use the solution being built. You make sure that we know our project role – that of a consultant or system provider. Our teams get to know each other better. We develop a common language which will be used throughout the project.
You gain assurance that the system starts to realize your business goals. You receive ready functionalities for testing on a regular basis. You already see that the new solution will bring you the expected business value.
We work with one goal in mind – to enable your business to use the new functionality as soon as possible. You receive it in a regular and efficient manner, without unexpected events, delays and errors. The working solution starts to bring you tangible business value.
You know that we are familiar with your solution and industry. You have trust in our team and our methods of work. You are sure that by entrusting us the system’s maintenance and development, you and your employees will gain more time for conceptual tasks which make your business grow.
Software as a journey
|• two separate teams – lack of trust|
• mutual grudges
|• one team with a common goal – trust|
• focus on solutions
|• misunderstandings||• making sure we speak the same language|
• mutual understanding
|• understood in different ways||• clear, consistently understood|
• priorities are correctly interpreted and regularly updated
|• does not take the business environment’s volatility into account|
• often focuses on IT
• requires having a vision of the entire system right from the start
|• openness to project changes and the Client’s business|
• so you do not have to know all the answers right from the start
|• lack of knowledge about project progress|
• long wait for first effects
• belated discovery of errors
• uncertain project results
|• observing effects regularly|
• ability to quickly react to errors on an ongoing basis
• possibility of changing business priorities
• it reveals many errors or the need to introduce changes as a result of changes in the company’s business environment
• no unexpected errors
• results correspond to expectations
Maintenance and development
|• covers only the technical side of systems||• apart from technical support, the provider cares about growing the Client’s business|
• searches and suggests new development directions
