We deliver solutions in two-week blocks which we call iterations. These short units of work start and end with a feedback and planning session with key stakeholders and domain experts.
Iterative and feedback driven
Approaching projects with an explicitly iterative, rather than linear, approach helps us avoid the alignment and scope issues that cause many software projects to fail.
Reduced risk and higher quality
Imagine a simple system with two modules, such as a plug and socket. The linear approach is to first build the socket then start building the plug. Our experience shows that quality and efficiency improvements can be made if both components are built in unison and regularly reviewed as a connected system. Each review of the whole uncovers opportunities to improve the design and reduce risk of incompatibilities.
Agile business thinking
Our methodology empowers domain experts to iterate through details and co-create very robust solutions as a result. Many of our clients report that stakeholders who had been skeptical of Agile methodology have now implemented our version of it across all their projects.
Iterating in the field
Our deep understanding of these challenges has enabled us to develop techniques for on site testing which do not disrupt critical processes. Depending on the project, we can perform on-site testing after every iteration or every third iteration as the project demands.
First class tools for distributed collaboration
Project details are recorded in the H&C web portal, and planning and feedback sessions are conducted via video conferencing. This enables maximum participation and transparent documentation.
