Agile Software Delivery

Years of refinement of our software design, development, and implementation practices has culminated in a repeatable process that builds quality into the process of developing software.  It reduces the technical debt that can be accrued in traditional development projects where unaddressed defects are like death by a thousand cuts..

Process Highlights –
  • Active Stakeholder Participation
  • Working software faster
  • Collaborative contract management
  • Responsive to changing requirements

Repeatable Processes

Requirements Modeling
The art and science of good software design starts with active stakeholder participation. Capturing a good user story conveys a system requirement from a stakeholder or end user’s perspective.  It describes what they want to do and why.

User Interface Design
The user interface design can help drive usability, validate that the user’s experience is intuitive and meets the intended purpose. It is an effective means for keeping the stakeholder engaged in the process and providing timely feedback.

Iteration Planning
The team and the product owner discuss the highest priority items in the product backlog.  It gives the team the opportunity to analyze the requirements being implemented in the iteration or sprint. Based on the team’s velocity, the quantity of work assigned for that iteration can be identified.

 

Daily Stand Ups
Each day during a sprint, team members meet to describe what is getting done and what needs improvement.  The team collaborates to resolve problems or time consuming issues and is intended to keep the work moving forward in a positive direction.

 

Testing
Testing is really a retrospective on whether the product meets the user’s intent.  In the case of non-functional specifications like security and compliance, independent test teams may be enlisted to provide a more robust testing capability.

Continuous Integration
Continuous Integration (CI) is a means for detecting problems early through build automation.  As developers integrate code changes into the shared repository, it is immediately compiled and validated ensuring better software quality.

 

Working together

Agile teams can meet their commitment of delivering a working system that meets the changing needs of stakeholders via constant communication combined with responsive and empowered decision-making.
