Agile product development consultancy
San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chattanooga, and New York
We advocate frequent release of working software. Sometimes the hardest thing to put into practice for larger companies is pushing code continuously. We use continuous integration, do test driven development, and try to deliver something that has business value to actual customers as often as possible. We have weekly iteration planning meetings, where developers, product managers, designers, and the project owner (usually from the client’s side) come together to plan the work for the week. It’s an open, collaborative discussion to identify what the highest value work is and estimate each unit of work. We’re pragmatic about pair programming and leave it up to individuals to decide. Most of the people here have had 8+ years of experience in the industry, so we trust each other to reach out for a pair when needed. Some people pair all the time, some less than that, but everyone pairs some of the time. At the end of the week, we do a demo as well as a retrospective (with everyone from our team and from the client) to go over what went well and what didn’t go well this last week.

For the first half of our existence we only had five or six engineers. In fact, we were only three engineers when we built version 1.0 of our software. We literally had to function in an agile way or we wouldn’t have survived, and that remains true today. It’s important that we pick problems, and quickly deploy software to test our hypotheses. This is partially due to the fact that executive buy-in and stakeholder feedback inherently requires agile functioning. We’re a fraction of the size of other teams building electronic health records (EHRs) and that’s only possible because we embrace the idea that perfect should never be the enemy of good. We’re deliberate about the problems we work on and iterate efficiently.
