agile scrum development
methodology

The Scrum framework helps us uphold our commitment to agility and maintain constant communication with product owners. We share complete transparency with clients through real-time project tracking tools, along with daily and weekly status meetings.

Here’s a look at our process.

project kickoff

We start with a discovery workshop to understand your organization’s background, technical requirements, project scope, user needs and expectations. It’s critical we have a deep understanding of these elements before we begin design and development.

1

planning

We work and plan in two-week sprints. We work hand in hand with your team to identify which features to include in each sprint, and how best to implement them.

2

product development

This is where the majority of time is spent each sprint – designing and building your product. Every sprint we deliver a working component of your project so we can test, iterate and keep moving.

3

retrospective

At the end of each sprint, we honestly assess our process. We ask what went well, what went wrong and how we can improve. These learnings are applied immediately so we collaborate and build better.
