How are You Managing Massive Software Projects?
The #1 problem with a large software project is that it is risky. Many software projects fail: the larger they are the worse the odds. We separate large projects into smaller phases, or milestones, so that we can deliver working software earlier
There are many benefits to this approach:
- Reduced Risk
- Additional Transparency
- Increased Trust
- Increased Flexibility
By using an iterative, agile project management methodology, we take a scientific approach to estimating and release planning, so we always understand the statistical probability that we will finish on time. With that knowledge, we can adjust accordingly. Over the years, we have identified a suite of application development tools that support our process very well: including Project Tracking, Source Control, Virtual Meetings, Screencasts, etc. These tools enable us to work more effectively than our competitors, especially where the client is not local.
Additionally, these tools enable asynchronous transparency. If you want to review the status of a set of features or defects, you can log into our Project Tracking Software and look without interrupting anyone. Similarly, we routinely deliver screencasts to demo new development so you can review it on your own schedule.
