Product Owners, or systems leads, work closely with the team to identify and prioritize system functionality in form of a Product Backlog that consists of whatever needs to be done to successfully deliver a working software system, such as better features, bug fixes, non-functional requirements, etc. With priorities driven by the Product Owner, cross-functional teams estimate and sign-up to deliver “potentially shippable increments” of software during successive Sprints, which typically lasts 30 days.
Our distinctive use of the Agile/SCRUM incorporates adaptive models well suited for rapid, lighter and more user-centric, approaches – providing the flexibility required to meet cost, schedule, and performance requirements.
Project progress is transparent and measurable, which is a key factor in communication and client satisfaction. Our project managers are deeply involved in project and release planning, Sprints, Sprint planning, daily SCRUM coordination and synchronization meetings, and Sprint Reviews and Retrospectives. We also augment Agile software development framework with Extreme Programming (XP), an agile software development framework that supports improved software quality and the responsiveness to changing customer requirements. This technique produces frequent “releases” in short development cycles intended to improve productivity and introduce checkpoints at which new customer requirements can be adopted.
