Maybe your team doesn't have all the expertise it needs in order to deliver your innovation? Perhaps it isn’t desirable to extend your in-house team's capabilities or you need additional strategic input?
Working alongside your existing team, we’ll introduce appropriate tools and methods to drive our collaboration through shared artifacts and transparent communication. Then, by leveraging our expertise in product development we’ll introduce appropriate elements from Agile and Lean methods, accelerating rapid iteration towards your chosen outcomes.
Our design process is a collaborative affair, a combination of research, customer feedback and the folks closest to the problem, working with us on ideation. We’ll create concepts for early user testing, refining the user experience based on feedback and then add the visual flourishes so the product not only meets user needs but also looks the part.
In the code, we’ll ensure the software does what it’s intended to by collaboratively defining the requirements using behaviour driven development. The quality of the code is guided by our test-driven development approach and our drive to automate as much of the quality assurance as possible.
Our whole system approach ensures the contributions we make focus on maximising the value of the system as a whole and not just the parts we’re responsible for. We’ll help by identifying dependencies between different parts of the system and defining early on how these parts will need to interact. We’ll collaborate with you to define the API’s required and decouple our development so we can work independently by mocking out the interfaces. They’ll also be a suite of automated integration tests to make sure the different parts of the system work well together.
The performance of a system doesn’t depend on how the parts perform taken separately, it depends on how they perform together.Russell Lincoln Ackoff
