Agile IT project management

Agile project management for your software launch

Do you need a new ERP, a modern CRM, or a high-end online store? Then you and your company are facing a marathon that often takes years. So in addition to endurance, a good plan is needed. But what makes a good plan? Is it the most detailed possible listing of requirements and the order in which they are to be processed? The exact definition of who has to do what and when? That’s not what we believe.

We consistently rely on an agile project approach in our IT projects.

We are convinced that this will enable us to provide our customer companies with faster, more efficient, and higher-quality IT services. Why is this? Because in a fast-moving time like ours, it makes no sense to create rigid plans.

At the start of the project, we develop a minimum viable product (MVP) with our customers.

The MVP is as lean a version of the future product as possible. It is strongly oriented to the software standard, can be implemented quickly, and helps to minimize project risk.

Sprint for sprint to the finish

With the MVP, we create a crystal-clear definition of the end product – and we get closer to this with each sprint during the course of the project. Before each new sprint, we decide which aspects should now be implemented for this MVP. Our agile IT project management enables us to react faster, more efficiently, and more adequately to changes in your business, on the manufacturer side, or in the course of the project.

Agile IT project management in four phases

We base our agile project methodology on Scrum. The project has four distinct project phases: the ramp-up phase, the build phase, the deploy phase, and the go-live phase.

The best part: We have incorporated the Scrum ideas into our project management framework and added our own project reporting toolset. This enables us to provide precise information on the progress of the project at any time and to state the project success rate. After all, agile means transparent and flexible!

In dieser ersten Projektphase bauen wir die Systemlandschaft auf, trainieren die Key User, klären Verantwortlichkeiten und bauen den Product Backlog für das MVP auf. Kurz: wir machen das Projekt startklar.  

Die Go-live-Phase ist der Zeitpunkt, ab dem die Lösung produktiv genutzt wird. Ziel dieser Hyper-Care-Phase ist, das Projekt abzuschließen und es in den Application Managed Service zu übergeben.

Die Deploy Phase beinhaltet Aktivitäten zur Vorbereitung des Go-live: der User Acceptance Test, die Bereitstellung der Produktivumgebung und -daten, die Finalisierung des Rechtekonzepts und die End-User Trainings.

Die Build Phase ist das Herz Ihres IT-Projekts. In Sprints – also Zeiträumen von maximal fünf Wochen – erstellen wir ein nutzbares und potenziell releasebares Product Increment. Am Ende jedes Sprints überprüfen wir den Backlog und passen ihn wenn nötig an.

We had less than 200 hours of development time for adjustments at go-live with a minimum viable product.
