We offer a proven design method known as "Agile with Control". It combines the main virtues of the traditional WaterFall methodology (control and predictability) with the agile methodology (lean, continuous improvement and adaptation). A new approach in the ITAM market, taking into account agile methodologies.
The result is a method that ensures that traditional waterfall controls are maintained in a flexible and agile development approach.
“Agile with Control” allows us to guarantee quality and efficiency in the delivery, development and release processes of sprints; allowing projects to be completed within the expected budget and deadlines.
Individuals and interaction between them more than processes and tools;
Software and services delivered more than comprehensive documentation;
Collaboration with the client and project members more than negotiating contracts and their clauses;
Responding to changes is more than following a plan.
We invest in agile methodologies as we seek to deliver more value to our customers
Scrum is one of the most popular agile methods and it is often even confused with the concept itself. To work with Scrum, the main thing is that we have a broad understanding of the team's skill and that it has well-defined roles for each one involved.
The main thing is that there is a Product (or Project) Owner. This person, who represents the interests of the end user or our customer, is the one who will determine – together with other people – what should be part of the product in terms of functionality. From there, it creates a list in priority order, which is known as a backlog.
Then, the tasks start to be distributed among the Scrum Team and the Sprints start – which are nothing more than development time intervals, which don't last more than four weeks.
At the end of each Sprint, the team takes a break and reviews the activities that were developed, to validate if everything was done as it should, if there is something that needs to be redone or if it is necessary to adapt some point.Then, it moves on to the next Sprint, until the entire backlog is complete and the product is ready for delivery.
Working with checklists and having full visibility of what is being developed by your team, these are the main characteristics when working with the Kanban system – one of the simplest and most used agile methods by companies.
To work with Kanban, we created a table (which in our case is Jira) and divided it into three columns, organized as follows:
The system is quite simple, but it demands that the entire team is engaged so that it can function properly.
After all, there needs to be constant monitoring of the tasks being performed, as well as their advancement between columns.
