Having worked in digital projects for over 11 years, we have learned from our successes with successful and scalable projects from big brands and entrepreneurs across different industries, but especially from the one’s that did not scale. We take pride in every pixel and line of code that we build in alliance with our clients, and we’ve celebrated big hits and sometimes mourned when the project didn’t. Based on this, we created this spinoff from the agile manifesto to start relationships with aligned expectations. Hopefully, it resonates with your idea of a successful partnership.

  • We don’t believe in general experts in the software game. We continuously study, work and grow in Flutter and Low Code (and corresponding technologies that support these technologies), allowing us to continuously improve our specialized craft continuously. As these technologies grow, so will we and your product's potential. After many years, we have chosen these two spaces due to their ability to perform right away, but especially for their potential growing forward. 

  • We’re agile to the core: We adapt to change continuously via Story Points, acceptance criteria and velocity. 

  • To achieve maximum velocity and alignment, we’ve created our own platform that simplifies Agile Digital creation. In all cases where optimum  velocity has been reached, the customer, Product Owner and Talent adopts and uses the platform completely. We strongly encourage our clients and internal team to work on the platform. 

  • Don’t go chasing waterfalls: We continuously Micro-Estimate, We do not initially Macro Estimate. As a project progresses, we learn more about the platform, business model and more importantly: the final user. In a fast-paced development world where new features are added weekly, initial estimates are counter to innovation and continuous adaptation to user feedback. Expect to continuously approve each micro estimation for each story point pertaining to the next couple of  Sprints so you can have a clear idea of what lies ahead. Every micro estimation point is open to discussion and optimization as we progress, but ultimately, it is you who decides to proceed or pivot. At the beginning of each project, we map out the identifiable backlog subject to change. We respectfully decline Waterfall project formats because we believe that it simply clashes with innovation. (Please do not think of it as signing a blank check, rather having full control of signing micro checks for every User Story at each Sprint with a simple click).

  • Initial design and development does not constitute Total Cost of Ownership of a software platform. There are ongoing costs related to maintenance, security, bugs, new features, marketing, server, API, licensing and constant adaptation costs that vary for each platform (Even in Low Code where maintenance is lower than full stack). Initial project ROI estimates must take this factor into account. 

  • There will inevitably be technical, logical, value proposition, etc challenges that we will have to tackle as a team. Being stoics, we believe in the following mantra: “Every difficulty presents us with an opportunity to turn inward and to invoke our own inner resources. The trails we endure can and should introduce us to our strengths.”

  • Meetings are important only if they have an agenda and maximize efficiency. 

  • Professionalism and a team building spirit must be maintained constantly by both parties through good times and the challenging ones.

  • Our contracts are easily breakable: Sometimes a relationship has run its course, so let's be grownups about it. Our MSA allows for mutual termination, with or without cause. If by any reason we need to part ways, we’d schedule a handoff sprint to ensure the continuity of your project with a third party. 

  • Big, medium and small bugs can/will happen. It’s a part of the software cycle. Through QA testing, collaboration and prioritization we can enable a rapid response leading to constant improvement and a better experience for the end user. 

  • Personalities and team alignment is not an exact science. We work together to improve the overall team’s alignment through feedback and vision alignment. If something isn’t clicking, we can correct course accordingly in an agile manner.

  • Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software, that is why we ask for feedback on every deliverable. 

  • Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.

  • Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale so we can learn quicker is the priority. 

  • At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.

  • As human beings, we will take ownership of our mistakes and try to make it right within means available.

  • We value our time, creativity, or effort. Even if a task takes 30 minutes to complete, our engineers have studied in University for years costing thousands of dollars (not to mention the self-taught time) for it to “only” take 30 minutes.  It is our inventory and our value proposition. Please do not request freebies.

  • Depending on the type of project: Platform, complexity and scope, we work with a Minimum Level of Engagement. 

  • Work hard; Rest hard: We establish norms for communication channels, schedule and RACI’s to have a common understanding on who is responsible, accountable, consulted and informed for each situation. There is a time and place for communication channels, and we strive to give our talent a comfortable resting time without unnecessary signals. 

 

 

Secondary

  • Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.

  • Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.

  • The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.

  • Working software is the primary measure of progress.

  • Agile processes promote sustainable development.

  • The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.

  • Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.

  • Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.

  • The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
