Why client’s full involvement is a recipe for success? (Pt. I)
Great app at the end, that’s the goal. By that I mean a succesful product, something you will be proud of. Your involvement is important if you really want to do this. So let our journey begin, a quick one divided in parts.
You’ve already heard about waterfall methodologies, but Agile means athletic (Rio 2016 Olympics, yes) and we believe in it here at Mood Up Labs, that’s why we want you to be involved as much as possible. In this post I will quickly describe our aproach.
So really, why do we need your full invlovement?
Decisive argument will be that planning phase is essential, we need your involvement because we need to know what do you want us to build.
Your involovement is the key for success
You are the first user of your app, aren’t you?
As a first user, you will be able to know exactly what you want and won’t and you will be able to communicate your desires. What features will be involved? What would you like in next release?
You are in charge and the best part is: after every sprint you will get release, sometimes after the first one.
Once you are first, you will be able to analyze your strategy, correct it, and be first again – said every winner in the game.
This is our approach and let me quote our Project Manger – Wojtek, he puts real essence into this in one sentence:
“Planning phase is very important: the exact scope of a project is defined, so we will know what to do and how to do it.”
I could dwell on that, and I will, what’s your’s opinion on planning or client’s involvement?
