We recognize, that in the digital world, more often than not, things will change within the business requirements. The key to a reliable delivery method therefore lies in minimizing the number of these changes when a set of functions is under construction and testing.
In over 90% of our projects, Q3 has adopted Agile development models – including:
- The Agile Scrum model
- The Hybrid Agile and
- Lean Development models
With our Scrum methodology, the “Product Owner” works closely with the team to identify and prioritize system functionality in form of a “Product Backlog”. The Product Backlog consists of features, bug fixes, non-functional requirements, etc. – whatever needs to be done in order to successfully deliver a working software system. With priorities driven by the Product Owner, cross-functional teams estimate and sign-up to deliver “potentially shippable increments” of software during successive Sprints, typically lasting 30 days. Once a Sprint has been delivered, the Product Backlog is analyzed and reprioritized, if necessary, and the next set of functionality is selected for the next Sprint.
