The process consists of two to four phases (depending on project type) where we work with you to establish a solid foundation for your project and set the stage for product success.
During the first phase, we’re aiming to quickly reach alignment on the objectives, vision and overall roadmap of your project.
We’re not diving into the specifics at this point, but rather looking to understand the project holistically. Based on this short period of alignment, we’ll have a good idea of what timeline we’ll need to execute the next phase of discovery.
In this phase, we establish a comprehensive understanding of your project's direction and determine whether a fixed-cost or agile approach is most appropriate for your project needs.
Should you choose an agile approach, we'll seamlessly transition into the software implementation phase using the Scrum framework and skip phases 3 and 4 of this process. If you require a ‘Fixed Cost’ project, we’ll continue with the next phase of alignment discovery.
Through a series of workshops, we’ll unpack and document all possible requirements that may form part of the product backlog into detailed user stories with business rules, acceptance criteria and scenarios.
We’ll also identify key POCs that will need to be run to assist with technical feasibility and estimation. Together, we’ll prioritise these user stories into a product backlog for sizing in the next and final phase.
During the final phase of alignment discovery, we’ll take the prioritised backlog created during Phase 3 and estimate the development effort for each user story using a metric called 'story points'. This allows us to provide timelines and cost estimates for the fixed-cost project based on the number of story points tallied.
If the initial timeline or cost estimate exceeds what is feasible for the project, we’ll work with you to cut back on the non-essential scope to ensure we can deliver a working and valuable product for launch.
