Agile Application Development

The Agile methodology seeks alternatives to traditional project management. Using Agile enables our teams for quick responces to unpredictability through incremental, iterative work cadences and empirical feedback. The Agile dev approach allows requirements grathering and solutions to evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.

That's why at wwi Dev we utilize Agile Development methods for building our applications. Agile software development methodology for building applications is a lightweight development process that offers value to build apps in short cycles effectively and efficiently.

Our Agile application development approach focuses on client communication, flexible planning, short delivery cycles, ongoing improvements, constant evaluation, risk management and encourages quick response to change.

By utilizing Agile Application Development techniques we are able to build high quality in a timely manner while adapting to ever changing customer and more importantly consumer needs through collaboration between app developers, app designers, customers, and end users.

Agile App Development

Walks With Intent has adopted Agile development processes since day one of the business back in 2011. We always start a project working very closely with the client, sometimes based in their offices for several weeks to capture and iterate the consumer or business model at the heart of the product.

wwi Dev always focusses on the usability first, who and how the product will be used from the interface and then we work backwards to review how this can be implemented with the available existing technologies and how cloud based technologies can be implemented in full or as part of the solution.

In the implementation phase we work in sprints with constant review of the code and the usability until the core product is ready for user acceptance testing (UAT). As we work with single discipline teams of iOS, Android, Web and Full Stack Back End this means projects can be delivered in 6-8 weeks with a high amount of functionality and iterations.

Key points in the process are essential to matching up with expectations and to feed into the iterative, agile nature of projects. These points are walked through at the wireframe phase of the project with the client, screen by screen, click by click and tap by tap. This is essential that everyone is putting themselves in the mindset of the user before any development and final design is implemented. Another key stage for a step by step walk through is once the app is functionally complete. Again, in person, with the client reviewing and discussing the product element by element.

Once products are launched it is essential that products are reviewed and adjusted based on consumer feedback from multiple sources. Updates initially should be frequent, as often as once every two weeks as the real champions of any products in the modern era are the end consumers not the product managers.
