This is arguably the most important part of our process.
It sounds obviously, but we like to start at the beginning; and for us, that means right at the beginning. We need to get to know your business/organisation, the markets it operates within, it’s purpose and how it operates.
This may involve speaking to stakeholders, directors, managers and employees so we can truly understand what makes your business tick.
Without exploring every avenue we could miss something important.
We look at your current business processes and workflows to see where we can add value.
Don’t worry – there’s no good cop bad cop routine.
Once we feel we’ve got all the pieces of the puzzle, we’ll plan out our approach and map out new workflows.
We then hold these up to you to see if they accurately reflect your business both in terms of solving today’s problems and moving the business forward.
With the best will in the world, there’s no such thing as the Perfect Plan. That’s why we employ a form of Agile Development, allowing us to react to unforeseen/additional functionality once the original planning stage has been completed.
Once we’ve got all the necessary plans in place, we’ll start to develop your business application.
When it's live, we’ll continue to support your business. Whether that’s through training, on-going maintenance or continued development.
Agile Development is an alternative methodology to traditional project management, used commonly in software development.
It’s a methodology which helps us to respond to unpredictability through incremental, iterative work cycles that we call ‘‘prints’.
In short; because it allows us to change direction quickly if the needs of your business were to alter, part-way through a development project… allowing us to be commercially sensitive.
It provides opportunities to assess the direction of a project throughout the development lifecycle. This is achieved through regular activities of work we call ‘sprints’. At the end of each sprint, we are able to present a potentially shippable product increment for review.
By focusing on the repetition of these work cycles as well as the functional product that is produced at the end of them, we are able to re-evaluate the direction of a project, so there’s always time to steer it in another direction if top-level requirements change and our priorities need to be refocused elsewhere.
We design smart websites, beautiful motion graphics, and bring illustrations to life; we rethink brands, devise clever and effective advertising.More on Creative
