Build and launch your product
We turn your development plan into a product that’s ready to launch
We’ll help you:
- In previous phases, we’ve taken steps to de-risk the project — we maintain this approach during the Build phase.
- Remain flexible throughout the Build phase. There may be points during development where opportunities emerge or something needs to change — we anticipate this and make sure it doesn’t derail the process.
- Build a product using best-in-class tooling, language and architecting for your requirements, laying a robust foundation for future development.
- Launch a product to the market that is developed to the highest industry standard to exceed objectives.
What we do:
Ways of thinking
Agile mindsetOur process is based on anticipating change and planning for it. We focus on taking the user from where they are today to where they want to be.
Product thinkingBy focusing on outcomes for users that are developed with technology, we’re able to move away from thinking purely about the input (“build this technology”) to the output (“I want to solve this problem for these people”).
Shared understandingBy ensuring everyone involved in the project understands the overall objective, we improve outcomes. Every element of the project is questioned —this means failure in one area (a poor user story) is picked up by other team members.
Ways of building
High-quality user stories as micro-contractsBy ensuring a shared understanding between team members, each feature is built with the overall user story in mind. We use micro-contracts to break execution into smaller steps with tight acceptance criteria. We deliver high-quality features that fit into the wider plan.
Ways of ensuring quality
Four lines of defenceEveryone involved in a product has a responsibility with respect to delivering repeatable quality. There are checks and balances during development to ensure products achieve the business objectives; this covers product owners, technical leads, engineers and quality assurance.
Project set upGet the project set up correctly from the start and you’ll have the right foundations to build from. Get the setup wrong and you will always be playing catch up.
Design and engineering ritualsLiving and breathing these allows us to support a culture of transparency, collaboration and ‘building for future users’. The whole project team adheres to proven techniques, including code commits, code commentary, code review, pull requests, sprint planning, retrospective and demo, design workflows and design handover.
Security maintenance and DevOpsWe don’t think of product quality in simple terms of the code delivered, or the UI. We use a holistic approach that includes having repeatable quality around DevOps, so clients can be sure their products are delivered in secure, appropriate and scalable environments.
