Which Development Approach works best?

As the old idiom says, “there’s more than one way how to skin a cat,” and there’s more than one way how to develop a software project. A quick search reveals a long list of development methodologies, including Agile Software Development, Crystal Methods, Dynamic Systems Development Model (DSDM), Lean Development (LD), Rapid Application Development (RAD), Scrum, Spiral, and Waterfall, just to name a few.

Theoretically, all development approaches should have one common goal: to make the client successful and build a great product. But do they, really? Cutting-edge companies like Google “are too centered around short-term thinking for working on revolutionary engineering projects,” explains a former Google Engineering Director, and many other developers and contractors forget that overly comprehensive documentation increases their chance of failure.

We take a different approach to software development, one that combines the advantages of all existing development methodologies and aligns them with the needs of our customers. We do everything it takes to place our valued clients in the best possible position, increasing their productivity, profitability, and general satisfaction.

This is possible only through a continuous work with our customers, perfecting their business models and prioritizing the most central issues above everything else. The Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule) is something that virtually all our clients intuitively understand, which is why they appreciate that we work on the biggest and most common problems first, resulting in the largest net impact and the largest return on investment.

We believe in documentation and a clear paper trail of requirements, needs, goals, and milestones. At the same time, we are well aware that one must be agile and quick to adapt in order to survive in the fast-paced business environment of today. That’s why we emphasize on-going cooperation, early feedback, and concise explanation of all critical decision at all phases of the project.

With us, you are getting more than a cookie-cutter approach to software development — you are getting a partner who is dedicated and pro-actively strives to provide you with the best solution possible. A partner who sees the value in any long-term cooperation and is at the very forefront of the latest software development methodologies.

Don’t settle for the average when you have much better options.
