Our delivery teams architect and implement custom applications and frameworks, protecting our clients’ investment in legacy technology via real-time application and data integration.
Scrum is a set of practices and rules that optimise the development environment, reduce organisational overheads and closely synchronise requirements with iterative prototypes.
It is value-focused and pragmatic, providing a controlled route to early and frequent project success; enabling the best possible solution to be constructed given the available resources and required release dates.
Whether you are considering an Agile project within your organisation or would like to avoid using costly freelancers, we provide a range of implementation, integration and consultancy services that ensure your project exceeds expectations.
Our Agile delivery approach was born from frustration with the inadequacies that can be found in more traditional Waterfall methodologies, not least that they tend to deliver a system that users thought they wanted 6-12 months ago.
Through our experience of different Agile methodologies (such as Feature Driven Development, SCRUM, Crystal and XP) across a variety of clients, we have developed a unique understanding of the various aspects of Agile methods that deliver the greatest rewards. This approach has produced a process that accelerates software development, while retaining control and ensuring high quality in the delivered project.
Our Agile approach delivers what our clients actually need by:
- Streamlining the process from requirements definition to delivery, with minimal management overheads
- Providing an environment where our Clients can discuss, suggest, trial, evaluate their requirements. Most importantly, they can change their minds and re-prioritise easily throughout the process
- Dramatically improving developer productivity
A Timebox is a fixed period of time; during which we agree to deliver a set amount of functionality. Using Timeboxes of between two and four weeks duration allows the team to focus on what is happening in that immediate period and ensures that both the client and Business Agility work towards obtaining the goal for that Timebox.
By providing a fixed time period, the management of budget and assessing the progress of a project is made simpler. This provides the client with a greater degree of confidence in assessing the status of a project.
The requirements of each Timebox are typically defined by a joint Business Agility and client team. This can be any mix of demonstrations, Proof of Concepts, or working functionality. The client has the ability to change the priority of requirements at the start of each new Timebox.
