“You‘ve got to start with the customer experience and work back towards the technology. Not the other way round” (Steve Jobs).
We pursue this approach as we develop our new products. Our primary goal is to identify the actual user needs and to extract the right ideas and functionality by adopting design thinking mindset and its tools. It allows us to accelerate MVP prototyping and to test the ideas and processes with the user quickly. Continuous usability tests aim to improve the user experience, which substantially dominates the agenda throughout the design process. This method, also known as human-centered design, allows us to work with different departments across a wide industry spectrum by putting the emphasis on user experience and application features.

Workshops on agile methods with deployment of such innovation features as

qualitative Interviews

“What if we found ourselves building something that nobody wanted? In that case what did it matter if we did it on time and on budget?” (Eric Ries).
The role of a product owner in agile teams is to specify the requirements, to update the backlogs, to manage the tools and to arrange the sprints, before the features are actually ready to be implemented. In-house product owners, however, tend to be deeply involved in extensive coordination with the stakeholder or exhausting project management activities. Our solution: think tank agile project managers with extensive experience in IT project management, capable of converting any ideas into precise requirements and managing the communication with the development team in any project. Our lean thinking approach allows us to prioritize the requirements and optimize the budget along with resources. As professional test managers we plan and execute the tests and supervise the application roll-out.
