HOW WE WORK
We oftentimes look at Digital Transformation as a series of Digital projects with a unifying architecture and approach. The goal being to provide ROI for each project. Often this projects our single process automation projects where we combine the data, applications, and people processes together with our digital products so we can build a simple easy to use user interface that allow the process to be accomplished simply. Other times the project is to build a portal for customer service or a “One Stop” for partner led work.
Either way we divide work into three major phases. Our first phase is Discovery, which helps us understand your business, your current technology environment and your business obstacles and objectives. Our second phase is our Rapid Validation and Design Spring and is optional if you need to build an MVP to validate an idea or get executive sponsorship. Finally, our last phase is the Digital Platform Construction & Custom Application Development work.
Our development approach utilizes a customized Domain Driven Design methodology, featuring cloud native, full stack development. We are well versed in building 12-factor applications using microservices, and modern data management patterns.
Discovery helps us understand your business, your current technology environment and your business obstacles and objectives. This is usually accomplished by a review of customer documentations, working session and client interviews.
Rapid Validation & Design Sprint (RVDS)
Rapid Validation & Design Sprint (RVDS) is a prescriptive, two-week process dedicated to defining our goals, making decisions, and building validated designs with real customer data. This concentrated process will move your Digital Transformation from Direction to Decision to Design.
Our proprietary Rapid Validation & Design Sprint is focused on the concept of Idea to Data and is based on the work and methodology developed by Jake Knapp, John Zeratsky, and Branden Kowitz in the book, SPRINT: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days. Our structured activities will help us rapidly answer big questions, solve major challenges and provide a direction that allows your company to confidently and rapidly move to the right solution. Common issues addressed by our sprint:
- Lack of real data that hinders effective business decisions without endless internal discussions
- Pressure to be “innovative” without a clear starting point or the proper components
- Expended efforts towards unclear goals that invite project scope changes
