PROPEL YOUR PROJECT

Commission A Project

Do you have an idea and want to test the market? Maybe your company has a side project that needs to be built now. We can spin up a team, launch the product and then spin down while you measure its effectiveness. Then you can come back 3-6 months later and ask us to spin up a team again for version 2.0.

Augment Your Existing Team

Is your feature backlog growing faster than your team can handle yet it just doesn’t make sense to ramp up your hiring efforts? Does your team want to learn how to be more agile? We have experienced full time staff (not a network of freelancers) who are ready to work remotely with your in-house technical department. We can add or remove team members based on your staffing needs. It makes perfect sense for most businesses.

Outsource Your Tech Department

We typically form long term partnerships with our clients who rely on Chromedia to perform all of their technical development needs. We have the business and technical experience to guide your digital product from soup to nuts. We’ve stepped in as interim CTO for startups in their seed rounds, we’ve guided med-tech businesses through the difficult roads of HIPAA compliance, and we’ve shaped the form of products for non-technical business leaders. You’re really good at your business but you’re probably not a software developer. Let us do that for you!

OUR AGILE APPROACH

DISCOVERY

Through a series of meetings, we’ll interview each other to gain the best understanding of your business goals and our fit as your team. Through this process our Project Manager will guide or write User Stories to communicate the goals to the development team. Our Project Manager will also come up with the list of deliverables for you. It will be your job to collect, organize, edit, and deliver to us content for each page of the website.

RELEASE PLANNING

After you and our project manager have prioritized the business value of the stories, the development team will create a blueprint for a release or series of releases/phases.

SPRINT PLANNING

The development team will now break down (if necessary) the user stories included in the release to manageable chunks. Each of these sprints will last around 3-4 weeks, and will culminate in a deliverable to you. At this point, new user stories can be added, and others removed if situations or business values have changed. During planning, the team will make content needed for that sprint known to you. By the end of this planning, the designers and/or developers will have a clear understanding of the User Stories within this Sprint, their assigned tasks, and the amount of time and cost to complete them.

SPRINT

Where the rubber meets the road! The team will actually work on all the elements of your project – design, development, testing, QA, implementation, staging, and launch a workable tangible deliverable for you at the end of the sprint.

DEMONSTRATION

At the end of the sprint, the team will make a presentation to you and other stakeholders about the work they have done and seek feedback on both the product and process.If the project has more than one Sprint, we then return to step 3 and begin planning for an additional Sprint, incorporating what we’ve learned through the previous sprint and incorporating all the updates to the backlog you choose to make.

LAUNCH

After all of the user stories in the backlog for a release plan have been addressed, we are ready for launch! If there are still features to be incorporated in future releases, we simply begin again at number 2 and continue working.

WARRANTY

Your site is now live! Over the next several weeks, our team will be training you on how to manage the website and helping you solve any issues.

The Agile Process and Contracts

It is a common misperception that a tech development project is similar to a construction project and relatively predictable. In reality, all development projects are highly uncertain with variable research and development. What’s the best way to work together and build trust?

Scrum Wars Episode VI – Return of the Scrum Master

I often wonder how great a focus Jedis must have.  To be able to channel the Force and use it – to augment one’s physical capabilities, to have it affect physical objects, to be able to channel and release it as lightning, and to be able to influence the minds…

Scrum Wars Episode V – The Backlog Strikes Back

What goes around, comes around. This is clearly evident when the Galactic Empire dealt a devastating blow to the Rebel Alliance forces at Hoth and on the other bases they had.  The Rebels destroyed the first Death Star and so the Empire responded in kind.  If a development team does…

Scrum Wars Episode IV – A New Team

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… Ah forget it!  It’s not the same without the intro music playing. I have always wondered what other training activities were done by Luke when he was with Obi Wan.  We see this session they had when they were aboard…
